Introducing success story of Krishna, who from a ordinary lad, became a successful car mechanic; with the able support and guidance of Centre for Education and Development Program (CEDP) Trust.

Krishna Dhansolkar’s  father’s demise was an unfortunate incident for him and his family. Living in a small room they struggled to arrange for the ends meet. With no support, his mother took up the petty jobs of domestic helps in neighbourhood to provide for the basic necessities. Krishna and his family have seen many ups and downs and have gone through trying times.

Amidst this tough struggle Krishna managed to clear his SSC exam, but could not continue his education further due to financial constrains.  His mother being a domestic worker they always had limited resources. Krishna wanted to become a helping hand to his mother at the earliest. He was eager to fight with the situation and in the bargain could do well for him and his mother.

His uncle advised him to take on a skill based course and briefed him about CEDP Trust, which offers Skill based training and education to underprivileged of the society through various types of vocational courses. Krishna also well aware about his socioeconomic background, realized that without skill he won’t be able to fight with poverty.

After scrutiny and verifying his financial status, the trust wing of CEDP sponsored the education of Krishna at their Centre. CEDP through its trust, helps underprivileged or those who are not so financially sound in obtaining vocational education at their centre for free or at a minimal prices in order to help them in becoming self sustainable.

With firm determination, hard work & able guidance and support from the qualified staff at the CEDP Skill Institute, Krishna completed the course with good grades; he also got good exposure about the automobile industry through training programmes scheduled by CEDP on a regular basis.

Presently he is working with Century Rayon for their production unit at Shahad, Kalyan. Krishna feels that the automobile course at CEDP Skill Institute has helped him to know about the automobile industry in depth and the hands on experience through on the job training during the course is helping him in his current task.
