Gayathri hails from Kolar, a district in Karnataka over 60 km away from Bengaluru. She lost her father when she was a child and was raised by her mother. In her early twenties now, she joined Gurukul — a skill-development programme run by a Bengaluru-based non-profit startup, The Nudge Foundation. A few days into the programme, her mother fell sick and Gayathri had to return home. The trainers at Gurukul were sure she wouldn’t come back. Although her mother passed away, she was not ready to give up. A few days later, Cyril Joseph, a trainer at Gurukul, got a call from the girl stating she wished to rejoin Gurukul.
