Mrs. Kaur’s story is one of 13 in the December 2016 DIR Progress Report.
My name is Sapandeep Kaur. I have done M.Com and have done CA Inter from Institute of Chartered Accountant of India (ICAI). I am from Punjab but born in Lucknow and brought up in Delhi. Because my father was in Indian Army and we used to live in Army area.
I got married 3 years ago and now I am living with my husband Baljinder Singh and his joint family in Sector-41 Chandigarh. My husband is Physical Education Teacher in Gems Public School.
I have been working for last 8 years. I have started my career as an accountant in Shree Krishna Agro Group in Sector-17 Chandigarh. Presently I am working in DIR as an accountant-cum-teacher and have been working here since last 7 months. In morning, I am working as a teacher in SWAD and after school time, afternoon onwards I work as an accountant.
I have never taught young kids before, which is now a very new experience for me. I have learned so many things after joining DIR and the various activities to play with small kids. I am enjoying the dual job of mine over here and feel proud to do this.
I feel privileged being a part of this organization which help our society by educating them regarding health, education and self-employment.
I also want to thanks our Dr. Shaw for recruiting me and giving me this excellent opportunity for being a part of such a wonderful organization. DIR is like a family and I really like this environment over here.
