Sunny Cultivates a Love for Cooking

As one of three children from a poor family in the Walke village in Maharashtra, Sunny Rajendra Sawant had few educational options. His father is a daily wage earner and his income could not support Sunny in his goal to attend college. Through career workshops, classes, and counseling sessions, provided through LOLT and Share & Care, Sunny was able to create a plan to attend college and pursue his bachelor’s degree in hospitality management at Ramraje College in Dapoli. He was named a top student in his classes and was regularly acknowledged by faculty for his excellent academic performance. At the young age of 22, Sunny is already on the path to a promising career, and he is currently working at the Lemon Tree Hotel in Mumbai, earning Rs. 27,000 per month. Through support from Share & Care, Sunny has become a role model for everyone in his village, finding his passion, creating a plan, and working hard on the path to success.

Sunny Sawant gained new educational opportunities, allowing him to cultivate a hospitality career he loves.
