Real Life Changing Stories

Ajay Kulkarni

M. Tech, JAVA Developer, Natwest

I couldn't pick up sounds since childhood and hence couldn't understand what others said nor could I communicate. With the constant support from my parents and teachers I went on to complete my MTech. It isn't easy for a person with disability to get a job in software industry. I was looking for a job and while searching for NGOs I came across Y4J. I was given an option to interview with Natwest, I got placed and this job got me an excellent salary package. Even in these hard pandemic testing times I managed to get an excellent job. I never stopped in believing in myself and my dreams and Y4J supported me really well in making my dream job a reality.


Rethi Nair

"The Role Mapping and Sensitization Training delivered by Y4J aligns well with our objective of building a strong and inclusive culture by leveraging diverse skills and abilities and complements our continuous effort to look out for, hire and support talents who are differently abled. Kudos to everyone involved!"
