Painting the Future

Lunminsat Haokip from Churachandpur is beaming with confidence! He has plans to register his own company and expand his business beyond Churachandpur. However, a few months ago, he had very fewer options in life. A class 12 dropout, he used to earn INR 350 a day, by working as a construction labourer to support the study of his three siblings. He got a new leap of his life when he joined training on “Construction Painting and Designing”. Fondly remembering, he said, “I loved the training as it was a mixture of both theoretical and field practical. I also gained knowledge and skills on starting own enterprise.” Upon completion of his training and on receiving his certificate from the academy, he mobilized a team to take up contract work at construction sites. The contracts for painting work are flowing in since then! “I will realise my dream to become a successful businessman soon. Nothing can stop me”, he said brimming with conviction.
