"I have been very fortunate to receive the best training in the field that I’m truly interested in from a reputable institute in Hyderabad. I never thought that I would get this far because my family and I couldn’t afford the course fees but after much hard work and with the help of MESC and NBCFDC, I was appointed as a Roto-artist at a top company. Now, I’m proud to say that I take care of my family and the sole earning member"

G. Prashanth Goud

"I believe that that I’ve been fortunate enough to receive such a wonderful opportunity to obtain skill and get the best training with the support of NBCFDC and MESC. Coming from a small town in Varanasi and looking at where I’m today with a job that can not only help me be economically independent but also look after my family, I feel extremely blessed. The program has changed my life.
