“Today, after office, I visited Pete’s Deli, Hauz Khas in Delhi. To my surprise, I met one of our students named Shweta Singh from Office Executive batch number 9. When she recognised me, she proudly approached and spoke to me. I also got to talk to the cafe owner, Tushar Alagh, who was delighted to hear about how Lighthouse is transforming the lives of the youth across India. Tushar is a chef from New York who has developed menus for various restaurants in India”- Sushant Agarwal, State Head, Delhi.
19-year-old Shweta belongs to a slum community of Giri Nagar in Govindpuri. Her family of four survived on her father’s meager income while her mother was a homemaker. But Shweta was determined to be more. Discovering Lighthouse, she joined the “Office Executive” skilling course. Her dedication was unwavering. “The Lighthouse has completely changed me. I can now talk in English confidently,” said Shweta. During the course, she mastered the Microsoft tools and communications. Soon after her exams, she secured a Service Intern position at Pete’s Deli.
