Dear Benefactor of Margadarshi!

Greetings from Margadarshi!!!

We are thankful for your timely help and continued support which is sustaining our project for the women at our Home. 

We have received a paper cutting machine, thanks to the generosity of a Corporate.  This helps us to cut the papers easily, thus increasing the production of the paper covers, paving way for increase in the revenue.

Last month the women were trained in jewellery making and it was a joyous moment for all of them.  The artificial jewelleries they made from various materials were beautiful and easy to make.  They were given back these jewelleries to wear.  It not only made them happy to see something beautiful made by themselves but also they felt motivated to experiment to make these cost effective jewelleries on ongoing basis. We are planning to make it as a livelihood project along with the paper cover making.

We thank you for joining hands with us for the Smile on each girls’ face at our Home.
