Progress Report

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Azad India Foundation!

It is my pleasure to share our latest report via GlobalGiving on the progress of our project to provide sewing machine to a needy girl for self-reliance in Kishanganj district of Bihar.  Thank you for your support and for empowering women to rise out of poverty. A sewing machine may be a simple gift but it is life changing for many women and their families. 

As a part of the ongoing livelihood support program, AzadIndia Foundation had given sewing machine to Rumi from village Miyabasti,Chattargach. 

 Indian government had announced complete lockdown in the month of March for more than four months in response to Covid19 pandemic. Many people especially those living in the poor and marginalized communities are still facing extreme hardships and economic distress. The situation is grim in the rural areas where majority of people are dependent on agriculture and work as landless labor and other odd jobs.

The project team revisited Rumi’s home after 3 months. She is still unable to get regular orders from the local tailors. Her monthly income has reduced to Rs 1500-2000 that is way less she was making before Covid pandemic.But she is hopeful that things would improve and her life will return to normal.

Thank you for giving chance to succeed! Your gift is making a big impact in not only their life but given hope others as well. Even a small donation has a potential to empower the whole family to earn sustainable income.

 

Do contribute to help us give life of dignity to more disadvantaged girls and please spread the word.

 

Warm Regards,

Project Report

Dear Friends,

We are happy to present our progress report of the project 'Goat for Livelihood support for Poor Women’. We identify the potential women beneficiaries who have no financial support and give them goats to supplement their income.

We had given 1 pair of goats to Hamida from village Sathbolia, Block Pothia at the inception of the project. She has three children without any steady source of income. She works as a landless labor during the time of the cultivation.

AIF team revisited her home after a gap of  three months. Up till now Hamida sold her goats for Rs 25000 for buying ration and food supplies. The goats provided her with the source of income during the time of the crisis.She still 

We need the funds to reach out to many more women like Hamida.

 Donating now will enable us to purchase goats at a fair price and ensure that the women receive the best breed. Goats are bought locally as their chances of survival are highest in Kishanganj.

Warm Regards,

A sewing machine may be a simple gift but it is life changing for many women and their families. 

Indian government had announced complete lockdown in the month of March for more than two months in response to Covid19 pandemic. Many people especially those living in the poor and marginalized communities faced extreme hardships and economic distress. The situation was grim in the rural areas where majority of people are dependent on agriculture and work as landless labor and other odd jobs.

 The project team visited Mantasa from village Motihara to see how she survived the lockdown period. Before Covid19 She was earning Rs 5000-6000 (approx. $90) per month that has reduced to Rs 1500 (approx. $20) in the last three months. She is finding it very difficult to survive and hopes that the situation becomes better soon. Due to Covid scare she is not getting orders from outside her village.

 Do contribute to help us give life of dignity to more disadvantaged girls and please spread the word.

 

Warm Regards,
