Gayathri (BSc. Computer Science) always knew she wanted to be a teacher. With Upasana, she was able to complete her teacher training course, and now gleefully teaches children with a new-found confidence from becoming an independent woman who can support herself and her family.
Stay-at-home mom Padma Priya was having a tough time starting a career. She knew she didn't want just any job - it had to be one that made a difference to the community. With Upasana, she is now able to do meaningful work with underprivileged children and is putting her MBA degree to the most commendable use.
Seethalakshmi recognized that children who have fun learning in class, learn better. She uses Upasana's concept-learning and activity-based approach to help students stay excited and engaged, even in Math class!
The confidence gap is no myth. Even educated women hesitate to take up jobs because they are unsure of their skills and potential. This rang true for Jaichitra - who found it woefully hard to communicate with others because she lacked confidence in her English-language skills. Upasana's encouraging team and easy-to-use technology helped her overcome her fears, and now she is a happy and reassured woman, and a confident and capable teacher.
I learn math, science, and environmental science at Vipasana. They help me study harder and I am able to understand all the subjects clearly.
I like the video and activity-based learning at Vipasana. I used to find it difficult to read English but now I read much more fluently.
Archana's mother noticed that her daughter showed a renewed interest in learning, spoke confidently and fluently, and independently completed her activities, without any nudging from her parents.
