Training (two years) in a reputed institute in Perambalur district. Her parents
are agricultural labourers and daily wage earners. Having four girl children in
the family, their two older daughters discontinued their education and were
forced to become labourers in the textile industry at Tirupur for a very meager
income in order to support the family. Arulmani also took up the same job in
along with her sisters after completing her 12th standard even though she
wanted to pursue higher studies. Field coordinators from World Vision India
visited the family and came to know the about the plight of the family and the
desire of Arulmani to study. With the motivation of the field coordinators from
World Vision India she discontinued her work and with great enthusiasm decided
to continue her education. World Vision India helped her identify an
