Priyanka then sought the assistance of Silver Linings to help her move on and to grow in her career and life!

Priyanka from Rohatak came to us over a decade back accompanied by her worried parents for their daughter was going blind. There were no appropriate enabling facilities for visually impaired people in a town like Rohatak; therefore their daughter's future seemed completely doomed.

We also aggressively got her to take a course in computers online; and today she is preparing for taking the Civil Services exams!

Antra came to Silver Linings looking for employment in our organization. Although we were, at that time hiring for HR recruitments, we were compelled to take her on! I say that as she was a post graduate in Bengali and did not, at that time have very good command over spoken English; however, her extraordinary enthusiasm just got us to have her on our team! She was a fast learner and we trained her in all that she was in need of. She worked with us for a little over a year; but there were dreams in her heart of becoming an entrepreneur! Silver Linings facilitated her journey by providing mentorship, exposure and encouragement to this aspiring lady! And today she is well on her way to a successful future for herself as well as artisans from far flung villages of the North East, who create the beautiful products those Antra now brings to urban dwellers! We are proud of her achievements and Silver Linings is all along partnering and supporting her with her new venture! We encourage and work with many other such wonderful women!
