Going to school, graduating from a university and then taking up a job at a blue chip major is a linear progression for many of us. At AIM for Seva, over 90% of our 3,800 students are first generation learners.
What’s gratifying is that over the last five years, we have seen many of our students opting for either higher studies or taking up employment. Today, 80% of our hostelers go to college after completing their higher secondary or take up a vocation.
A Swapna is a case in point. A student of the AIM for Seva Tribal Girls Chatralayam for Girls, Nandyal, Andhra Pradesh, she joined the hostel in 2007 when she was in 4th standard. There are currently 70 girls in the Nandyal hostel.
Swapna who is currently doing her final year BSc Statistics from Sri Ramakrishna Degree College, Nandyal has been recruited by Foxconn , a Taiwanese multinational electronics contract manufacturing company during campus placement.
Swapna will be placed at the company’s Sri City unit in Andhra Pradesh. She will start as a supervisor in the packing section of the company at an annual package of Rs 1.2 lakh. She will first have to undergo training for three months. Swapna aspires to be an entrepreneur in the packaging industry.
We wish her all the best.
