Yes. I am working in M.N.TECHNOLOGIES in BANGLORE.
But yes, money is important to survive and to fulfill needs. It cannot bring happiness to your life until you have people around you. Happiness is something which can come from seeing people around us happy and to be part of their happy moments.
1. Great Platform to learn new skills.
2. Providing employment to youth by giving them training.
3. MITRAz will help students to explore themselves.

2. Providing employment to youth by giving training .
3. MITRAz is the best opportunity to build a future with guidance and training.
Skilling for a job, serving for a cause
Breaking the barriers – The story of a young man on the path of growth
He knew the life he wanted, but didn’t know where to start.
He was undeterred by failure, but language was a barrier.
His thinking was defined, but his presentation was not refined.
Any time is a good time to start
Naveen comes from family stricken by poverty in Yenumanapalli village. His father, an auto-rickshaw driver, never took responsibility for the family and his mother was left to care for herself and the children. Despite all the hardships he endured, Naveen, through sheer determination and sincerity, managed to complete his graduation but was at a loss as what step to take next.
Self-belief and hard work will always earn you success
Vani hails from the economically weaker section of the society and her joint family of nine subsisted on a dismally low income of Rs 4000 per month. With barely any knowledge of English and very-low self-esteem, Vani came to MITRAz to pursue the GDA course. A conscientious student, she completed all her assignments on time, despite family issues and displayed great discipline, observational skills and punctuality throughout her course.
Vani is truly grateful to MITRAz that she is now in a position to support her family financially and is at the same time able to give back to the community. “Now I’m not only working but am also helping with the GDA training in MITRAz. I have improved my English and communication skills and am able to help the elders around me, as has always been my goal. My parents and family are very happy and proud of me. Thank you MITRAz for being there for me.”
In the middle of every difficulty lies an opportunity
She enrolled herself in the fifth batch of the GDA course and immersed herself in upgrading her skills in order to give her family a better life. MITRAz placed her with Apollo Home Care in Chennai where she works as a home care giver. She earns Rs 16,000 a month and is more than happy to finally be able to provide a comfortable lifestyle for her young family.
On being asked about her journey with MITRAz, Mahalakshmi says, “MITRAz treated me like family. Each faculty member was so helpful and every time I had a doubt, they would sit me down and work me through it. Because of Mitraz, because of the outflow of support I have received, I am where I am today. Mitraz is a person, not an organization, and it is the reason I see myself here”
As humanity, collectively, we explored space. Some of us, touched the moon. Others, are trying to even colonize Mars. They sure have gone places. Gone the distance.
But not Mahalakshmi. She went farther than space. Farther than touching the moon. And farther than touching Mars. She went all the way, and touched a patient’s heart. That is what you call mesmerizing!
Ambition is the first step to success. The second step is action
Post a few years of marriage, the devastating COVID-19 pandemic struck, and with that back came the distress. The misery. And the trouble. Her husband lost his job as a driver and their future looked bleak. She almost resigned to her fate of having to work as a maid like her mother when Lady Luck knocked on her door.
Amrutha’s hard work paid off and she was placed to work as a therapist in Olivia Skin Care Clinic, Bangalore. A starting salary of Rs 15,000 was something she did not even dare to dream off earlier and now she is living the life she never thought she could have.
“I don’t know what to say,” She said when she spoke to us, ““My in-laws, my relatives, they used to always look down on me. Quite begrudgingly, quite disapprovingly. But now the tables have turned! Today, I not only have a job, I not only earn my bread, on my own, I have my entire family, including my in-laws, talking to me, and respecting me while we converse.”
Today, as we look on at her success story, we realize something that has been staring us in the eye for quite a while.
Her beauty wouldn’t mesmerize people. Her passion and commitment would.
Sacrifices bear fruit
Bhargavi says that at MITRAz she got a complete education – from learning how to behave to communication skills, from how to face and solve problems to how to keep one’s dreams alive. Her parents are extremely pleased with the training she received at MITRAz and are grateful for the placement opportunity. MITRAz lit a fire in her and she aspires to do BSc Nursing next year.
Professionally settled despite all odds
Achieving one’s dreams
Realizing one’s potential
Nothing is Impossible
A confident and grateful Savitri says, “I have learnt how to be independent and express my opinion due to my training with MITRAz. I’m motivated to learn and earn! I am able to handle my patient’s tantrums well and stand on my own two feet. MITRAz has enabled women’s empowerment in the real sense. It motivated me to work and achieve my dreams.”
