Preeti's quest towards self-enrichment
Preeti was born with a profound dream to become a fashion designer. Stitching and cutting of dresses are in her blood as she is a girl of homeworker's family. Preeti, was no doubt a usual face of Aider. She has taken admission in our computer centre to seek a basic knowledge of computer which can help her in dress designing somehow. She is from a poor family where computer training or fashion designing are not preferable. Her story is an inspiring one.
