Sarojna Rajya Durke is from Ambedkar Nagar, Gadhchiroli, Maharastra. She is 20 years old and has passed 12th standard. Her father is a farmer, and she has three sisters and two brothers. She was not able to access higher education due to the lack of financial means, so she left her studies and started labor work in the construction field.
One day, the members of the Gadhchiroli Forest Department came to her village and talked to the people about the PACE center. Sarojna’s younger brother informed her about what he had heard, and she asked her parents if she could join. Her parents were initially reluctant, but became convinced when Sarojna explained the benefits of completing the course.
At Khajuraho, she acquired good habits like punctuality and grooming. After completing her course, she was placed in Leonia Holistic Destination in Hyderabad with food and accommodation covered and a stipend of Rs. 6000/-. She is happy that she can help her family with her earnings and is extremely grateful to the PACE Hospitality Training Center.
