It was a cherished moment for a 23-year old DB Tech alumnus Suganthan, who was promoted from Senior Steward to Area Manager with a salary package of Rs. 19000/- per month at Café Coffee Day in Bangalore.  Suganthan come from a poor and destitute family at Adiyanoothu, an isolated campsite for the Sri Lankan Refugees near Dindigul, Tamil Nadu.  Socially and financially, life was not easy for him and his family striving between the civil and political turmoil in his country, Sri Lanka. 

As a refugee, struggles and obstacles was a part of his life that he needed to overcome to live a decent living. During these days, he came to know about DB Tech (Manikandam, Tamilnadu) through his parish priest. With a hope to fulfill his dream of pursuing a market-driven course and his aged father’s aspirations, he enrolled in the Retail Management domain. It took a few weeks for him to get deeply rooted and apply himself into the course. With his hard work and dedication, there was a gradual and impressive amplification within him.  Post-training, his performance during the interview with Café Coffee Day was well appreciated and was promptly selected.

It has been a year since he joined Café Coffee Day and it was delightful moment not only for him and his family but also for DB Tech as he got promoted to Area Manager.  When contacted, he humbly said, “Now I am able to stand on my own feet and meet my needs and expenses. Since the day I joined DB Tech course, my life has changed and healed the wounds that I experienced earlier in my life. I thank DB Tech from the bottom of my heart for giving me such an opportunity and feel grateful to all those who have supported me.”
