Suguna Raju joined Lebenshilfe at the age of four. With multiple physical and emotional handicaps, he was viewed as a burden to his impoverished family. Overcoming communication challenges, impaired hearing and eyesight, with resulting emotional issues, he gradually obtained the skills necessary for independent living.
Today he is employed at Lebenshilfe as a carpentry instructor. While some people wondered if he could do the job, Lebenshilfe gave him a chance. Today under his watch students at Lebenshilfe carve and paint our famous “wooden vegetables” that realistically decorate countless homes in our area. The strength of his vocational skills speaks volumes of the his success.
