Balasuk, 22, is the eldest daughter of the six children in the family. Her father, an Automobile Mechanic due to his meager income could no longer afford her education expenses.

As she grew older, Balasuk wanted to pursue a career as a Beautician; however expensive tuition fees deterred her pursuit. In her search about affordable skill training, she visited the iLEAD Centre at Nongthymmai, Shillong. After learning about the free training offered, she immediately enrolled in the Beautician course.

After successfully completing her training, she was placed in a Beauty Parlour in Shillong as an Assistant Beautician. When she came to know about the interest free loans that were being provided to iLEAD alumni under the ‘Micro Enterprise Development Promotion in Meghalaya’, she came to the Centre and shared her business plan.

Balasuk is currently one of the 50 entrepreneurs currently being supported by the TATA Trust “Micro Enterprise Development and Promotion Project in Meghalaya” project of supported Aide et Action. Nothing can deter the spirit of a woman who aims to succeed in life.

Going to school is no more a hassle for these children hailing from Berial Chudiharwa village in Patna. Raised in a backward community, their parents were uninterested to send them to school. When the local police officer, Sanjay came to know about the issue during one of the interactions with Aide et Action staff, he immediately counseled the parents.

Convinced enough, the parents started sending their children to school. As a gesture of encouragement, Mr Sanjay gifted these 16 children with school bags on Independence Day. Be a Change Maker and support the cause of Education.
