“No one would have dreamt that Harbinder Kumar would one day be working in the Ropar District Court House. But that’s exactly what this 24 year old, mildly intellectually challenged young man is doing - and he is loving it!
Having spent 7 years at Ambuja Manovikas Kendra (AMK), he trained as an Office Assistant and on graduation in 2011, secured a stable job at the office of Advocate Sh. D.S Deol, earning Rs 2500/- per month. He later shifted to work with Advocate Mr. Bawa and today he earns 10000/- per month.
This is a far cry from a child who had issues in speech and hearing, and poor social and self-help skills - but today he has transformed into an independent person, with the ability to read, write, and take care of all his daily personal and professional activities.
However, this is not the only time Harbinder has excelled at something he has turned his hand to. He excelled at all AMK activities including sports, cultural, social, academic, and domestic skills - winning many awards the highlight being two silver and one bronze medal for Badminton at the 2011 World Summer Special Olympics in Athens Greece.
Is there anything this young man cannot do?” - Harbinder Kaur, Ropar, Punjab
