Our Champions

Daniel Sirka

I called a CCI my home and I had to leave it after I turned 18yrs old. YCDA helped me in finding a career of my choice through aftercare programme. Now I am living an independent life and working in a private Mining Company as a Supervisor.

I am also the president of the Odisha Care Leavers Association and I pledge to take this association to meaningful heights! I would like to express my gratitude to the entire team of YCDA who have always supported us in achieving a fulfilling life.

I always got fascinated by machines while I was young. I asked my CCI madam to help me study engineering but they couldn’t due to lack of funds. One day I met the YCDA mam who enrolled me in diploma in electronics and telecommunications engineering course through the “Aftercare Programme” of YCDA. After completion of the course, I was placed as the Supervisor in Sterlite Tech Production Company at Ahmadabad, Gujarat.

Hi! Me hun Sonali!

I was raised by a very strong single mother who did everything to support mine and my siblings life. My mother had no choice but to put me and my sisters in the CCI so that we get food and education.
