Rimpi Das was not able to complete her education as she was married off after Class VIII. The marriage ended soon as she was a victim of domestic violence. Rimpi decided to move out with her son and live with her parents.
After learning about Literacy India from a friend, she enrolled herself in the beauty and culture course. She learnt the required skills and got a job at ‘Glam: Hair, Beauty and Spa Salon’ where she will be earning Rs 3,500 per month.
“When my marriage broke, I lost hope in life. I am living my life again because of Literacy India,” she said. In future she wants to open her own parlour.
