Laxmi works as a receptionist and doctor’s assistant after having completed a course in Hospital Reception and Spoken English. However, life had not been easy for her since childhood.
Having lost her mother to HIV and TB at an age of 9 months, Laxmi was brought to Ashray, her home for the next 12 years. Laxmi tested HIV negative, but at the age of 8 years, was diagnosed with Hepatitis B, which was successfully cured following rigorous counselling, by CCDT staff, to take her medicines timely.
Laxmi has been a part of CCDT now for over 21 years and has become known for her honest and hardworking nature. As she herself says, ‘Life has taken a full circle for me! I now work and live on my own in the community. I look forward to my bright future and plan to complete my graduation.
