“My only job at the construction site was to carry bricks and other material and to provide that to the Mason. If I ever annoyed the Mason or the Supervisor, I would not be allowed to work for many days. I always wondered why even after labouring more than others, my wages were low up until I understood that it was so because I did not possess the skills that a Mason did! I think I was very fortunate to have been noticed by Dalmia Foundation’s team and got selected for this program. I would not only have more dignity at work, but will also be able to earn around Rs. 300 per day, double of my pre-training earning. Who knows, I would one day be a contractor and have my own team!” -Ramu, Dugganpalli Village, Kadappa, Andhra Pradesh
