Nonprofit partner: Leonard Cheshire Disability
Childhood polio left Arasu with a physical disability, and, after graduating from university, he struggled to find work, lacking confidence and basic job skills. Through Leonard Cheshire Disability's Livelihoods Resource Centre, he developed computer and communication skills and secured a job as proof reader for a publishing company.
After three years on the job, Arasu returned to school to pursue his dream—teaching—using the savings from his salary to pay his tuition.
"The Learning Resource Centre helped me realize my potential and acquire the skills I needed to get a job.” – Arasu
