19 year old Amisha belongs to Jafrabad near to GHCL’s salt yards in Gujarat. They are five members in the family and her father is working as a security guard. Her parents want her to study Science, but she does not have an aptitude and interest for it. Hence she was unable to pass the HSC exam in the Science stream. She became very depressed and confined herself to her house.
During this period, the community mobilizer from GHCL’s Vocational Training Institute visited her home and shared various choice based employment opportunities linked to short term vocational courses. Because she is a girl, her parents did not allow her to enrol in a course that involved moving out of village for employment.
