“Before joining Genashtim my life was pretty simple, volunteering for a local NGO. I received no income though an allowance was given at times.
Now that I am a part of Genashtim, I have a sense of personal satisfaction and fulfillment as I am able to provide for myself and my family. I started as a part time staffer, helping in the QA department, and was very thankful when I was promoted to a fulltime position in May 2012 as this meant an increase in my earnings as well. I consider this a very good opportunity to sustain our daily lives and future.
Working with Genashtim is challenging. I’m always willing to learn and seek ways to develop myself. I am doing things that I never thought possible and am willing to continue working with the company as long as the Genashtim needs my services. I love Genashtim!”
