Meet the Pankh Rockers!

These Retail Associates Prove That A Disability Can’t Affect Your Ability To Succeed.

When your work is outstanding, acknowledgement naturally follows. That’s exactly what Sandip Makare, Rakesh Dhakta and Veerayya S Halgimath have proven time and again. What’s exceptional is not that all three of them are superstars in their own right, but rather that they are so despite their disabilities.

From Housekeeper to 2-Time Star Performer.

Sandip Makare, who is speech & hearing impaired, completed his training with Pankh in October 2014. Since then, he’s been employed with Reliance Retail - Value format at Nerul, Mumbai. He has consistently displayed hard work, dedication & retail acumen; little wonder why he’s bagged the Star Performer Award twice already.

Another such example is Rakesh Dhakta. While he has a speech and hearing impediment, his enthusiasm is far from affected by it. Rakesh, a Malad East resident, enrolled for training at the Pankh Smart Center, Santacruz in January 2015. Post training, he has developed innovative ways to communicate with customers like using graphic illustrations for pricing, among others. He works at NM Chocoholics, Hiranandani Garden, Powai, and sometimes single handedly manages the shop too. 

From Associate to 2-Time Star Award Winner and Future Team Leader.

Then there’s Veerayya, a differently abled but highly talented youngster from Dharwad, Karnataka. He found out about Pankh-Samarthanam retail training through a newspaper advertisement and enrolled himself in order to support his poverty-stricken family. That was a good choice for Veerayya whose dedication and consistency at Mega Mart, Bangalore where he is employed, has earned him two Star awards for excellent customer service and one appreciation letter too. He is highly motivated and aims to become a Manager.

Someone once said, “The only disability in life is a bad attitude”. And judging by their attitudes, we’d say they’re empowered!
