Centre Name : Don Bosco Tech - Shillong
Domain : IT @ Workplace
Employer : 3i Infotech

Hiramon comes from the village Laitkor which is located on the outskirts of Shillong. There are total 9 members in the family including seven brothers, one sister and mother. His father died when he was about six years old leaving the responsibility of the entire family on his mother. Since that day her mother is trying hard to look after the complete family. Very unexpectedly, in the year 2008, the second eldest among the siblings passed away due to sudden illness, unluckily the same thing repeated in the year 2011 when eldest brother died suddenly due to unidentified illness. These incidents affected the complete family very badly.

One of his brothers looks after the entire family by working at a farm and rearing pigs on a very small scale.  His sister has got married and has a four month old baby. His other brothers are studying, where as he has already completed his schooling from St. Jerome which is situated in Nongmensong, Shillong and has also done his graduation from Raid Laban College.

After completing his education, he was now determined to work and look after the entire family. Unfortunately, he was unable to find any suitable job for himself. But he was still trying hard to find out a way. One such day, he came to know about DB Tech that has launched a 3 month programme called BASE for the poor and deprived ones. This is a programme that not only offers domain specific skill training but also helps students in placement after they have successfully completed the training. Knowing this he visited the DB Tech centre located at Shillong and enquired more about the programme.

The trainer at the centre counseled him and advised to go for ITES domain. He joined the training and took it very seriously. After completing it quite successfully, he got a chance to join a Call Center located in Kolkata. He worked there only for two months, because after that he had come back due to family problems. Returning back he joined S S Netcom, a firm located in Shillong as a Data Entry Operator for about eleven months. He had to leave again since the firm was downsizing the staff. Nevertheless, he was able to secure another job with the same profile at 3i Infotech and is working there till today. When he was asked to share his future plans, he said, “I m hoping to get better opportunities in life so that the future of my younger brothers can be secured”.
