Vishu Kapoor, IT Service Desk, Mphasis, an HP Company, Pune
Vishu Kapoor came to us as an extremely withdrawn, angst ridden young man with no communicable language and a mother in despair. She just wanted him to be out of the house for some time so that she could get breathing space. It was a huge challenge to train him; he was even expelled once for bad behavior. But as he learnt sign language and began to express himself, he grew in confidence and figured he liked working on the computer. It took us a year and a half but Vishu cleared the basic IT exam and was taken for an interview to Mphasis, a well known BPO Company. He not only cleared the technical tests but is now winning awards for being best employee and is a shining example of how given the correct environment Deaf are not Dumb.
“I thank NDS for helping me with a job. I am very happy. I have grown in my work and received an award for best performance. My family is very proud of me”
Thousands of youth like him who are awaiting such an opportunity to learn to develop skills read and write and aspire for jobs. We would never have done any of this without the support of big hearted individuals and companies who stepped forward to walk along with us.
NDS continues to spread the cause of awakening of deaf youth to their potential proving themselves as value add citizens of the country and capable members of their families.
