VOCATIONAL SCHOOL CASE STUDY
Krishna B.K, now 24 years old, became part of NYF’s Village School Scholarship Programme when he was 9 years old. His father had died from TB, leaving his mother, 2 older sisters and younger brother in extreme financial difficulty.
Krishna had suffered particular hardship throughout his childhood and this played a part in him being unable to pass his Plus Two (A-Level equivalent). He was subsequently referred to NYF’s Vocational Education Programme. NYF was able to sponsor him to attend the Balaju School of Engineering and Technology on its Electrics course. He completed his Level 1 training (390 hours over 3 months) in January 2015 and started his first job the following month.
In just 18 months from beginning his career, he began his own business and now earns about £1850/year: more than double the average Nepali salary.
