Parents pressurize kids to do graduation, ask them what next? They enroll for computer classes learning tally and basic programming … to what end?
Shreeja came to AVS for 3 month training in hospitality, after which she was selected to join ITC Gardenia in Bangalore. Her fan moment was when she met Shahrukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Jadeja, and many more. Her learning and work were intense, but she did not give up. Today she works at Taj Madikeri, closer to her home.
Shreeja is a fervent believer that regardless of one’s life circumstances, one should be financially independent. Daughter of a carpenter, she knew nothing about Hotels, she says “I did not know anything about hospitality or the opportunities that exist. I believed in AVS and my parents allowed me to work where I got placed. The biggest learning for me is – Hotels are a safe place for girls, and the department does not matter- but the brand does. With AVS we get the best placements. I am very happy and so is my family.”
HR Manager of Taj Madikeri Mr. Satya NVV says “Ms. Shreeja S Our Housekeeping associate known for her cheerful demeanor has been our Guest’s favorite, though she has joined us a little over six months, she has been serving our guests with complete generosity, warmth and sincere care which sets her apart from the others.

We hope that she achieves greater success in the years to come.”

The students employed from Atithi Vriksha Shiksha are conversant with the industry practices which helps us in bridging the skill gap.”
