Success stories

I am Shahid,

My mother died when I was little. My father married another woman. My childhood was without love and care. My father also died while studying plus two. In the mean time I met Smt. Amina [Nilambur CDS chair person] and learned about JSS. Then I joined the 2 wheeler and 3 wheeler servicing course under the JSS-NUML scheme.

I studied very well and completed my course. After my studies, I got a job with Bajaj auto in Ernakulam.

I firmly believe that JSS is a turning point in my life
