He has been working in this vocation since 2006 and by graduating from high school he joined Sociology Faculty of Herat University. When he graduated from Sociology Faculty, he joined Ansari VTC -“Home Appliances Repair” class. He adds that during this course he has been trained in industrial electricity, house wiring and home appliances repair.
Ab. Karim is the only bread-earner of the family but in case of a possible financial support, he talks about continuing his education in the field of Sociology in Master and even Doctorate levels. He also added that with keen interest in electricity vocation he wants to improve his business. He says that each country needs such trained people in certain vocations and only higher education is not the criterion for success and progress in a country.
