What Beneficiary and Partners Say?

My name is Shanthamma from Thaladummanahalli, Sidlagatta Taluk. I started working at the age of 18 since I am having my disability. I spent Rs. 6,000 to learn the basic computers in an institute in my native place but I did not touch the computer even one day. When Ruralshores mobilizers came to our village and explained about their course, I visited the office and took my admission in their course. I am the first person to come for the class to practice the computers. With help from RuralShores my typing has improved and I am now typing at the speed of 35 words/minute. I have also improved my confidence level and English communication skills with this training program.


Myself Gangarathna from Mylappanahalli. I am a married woman and have a 3-year-old child. My husband is a farmer. In my family, I am the only person to complete Graduation. I was confused what to do next after my graduation. One day Ruralshores Mobilizer has visited our house and explained about the DDU GKY scheme. Then I came the center with my husband and joined for the course. I never imagined the center would be so nice. I came to know the value of the job and the course. I gained the respect of people with my good position in the job. Our, relatives used to taunt me about studying at this age, being a married woman. After the changes in my personality, all the relative were quiet. All this credit goes to my trainers.


We started working with RuralShores Skills Academy four years back. We had a unique challenge of rolling out our marketing activities in rural areas, of sourcing field staff, training them and then monitoring their performance across the country. RuralShores initially started with training the field staff using their unique methodologies and soon supported us in sourcing and monitoring them too through their technology solution. They have been able to reach across remote locations with multiple languages making them our preferred training partner.
