The Story of Renuka Gawade...

Renuka Gawade belongs to the district of Gadchiroli in Maharashtra. Her father was a farmer, with a very low income. Despite, abysmal financial conditions, Renuka managed to complete her education till the 12th grade. She aspired to study further, but decided to give up this dream to support her sister for higher education. She took up a job at a local hospital earning a meagre salary of INR 2000 per month to sustain her sister’s education.

Renuka was unhappy with the long hours and the insufficient pay. After working for a couple of months, she stumbled upon a brochure of the Pratham Hospitality Training Program. She decided to enroll herself in the course.
Midway through her training, she received the news of her father’s death.  The sudden demise of her father, left her devastated. Despite this, she pushed forward and with the support of her friends and the faculty she successfully completed her training. She is now placed at Leonia Hoslistic Destination at Hyderabad with a salary of INR 6,000 in addition to food and boarding.
