The pandemic has left many people without a job, with families struggling to make ends meet. 

Something similar happened with Bishnupriya Swain and her family when her father, a driver, lost his job during the pandemic. 

Swain, a student of class 12th, was already taking tuitions to support her family but during Covid, even students stopped coming for classes.

Left with no viable source of income, 18-year-old Swain decided to join Zomato as a delivery person and support her family. 

I was taking tuitions. During COVID students weren't coming to class. We were facing financial issues. I joined Zomato to support my education & family.
