It was a pleasant surprise for the students of the Association for Non-Traditional Employment for Women (ANEW) who are pursuing courses in home nursing, computer education, driving and house keeping at it's centre in Anna Nagar.
It not only gives training but also takes care of the placements too for these girls. Till now, 3565 girls have been trained in various fields. The ANEW started a course on tally and accounting from 5 October.
Chennai: Priya finished school and started work, almost immediately, as a telephone operator. “It was so boring to sit around all day and answering calls so I started looking out for something else to do” says the vivacious 21- year- old. She spent three months learning how to drive and is now a driver from an NGO. “This is much more interesting” she says. “I get to drive all kind of vehicles and meet different people everyday.”
She looks some what incongruous in her seat of occupation. Skinny dressed in a khaki shirt over a salwar –kameez, 27 years old D Kayalvizhi is the first women ambulance driver at the Government General Hospital, and possibly the first in the city.
Music and magic, both charmed the audience alike at the fundraiser event put together by ANEW, an NGO working for unprivileged women.
Association for Non- Traditional Employment for Women (ANEW) will be hosting a fundraiser on March 1 at Hotel Savera. Magic show by illusion artist Dhayanidhi and music by Ritwik & Roshan will be the main attraction of the show.
