Progress Report

Hamida with her Goats
Hamida with her Goats

Dear Friends,

We are happy to present our progress report of the project 'Goat for Livelihood support for Poor Women’ which started almost two years back by Azad India Foundation. 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 is a divorcee deserted by her husband. 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 three months. Hamida has sold five of her goats for Rs 6700 for buying ration and food supplies and to pay for her own medical treatment. She is really grateful to GlobalGiving for the support she had received and helped her in dire straits.

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,

AIF team revisited her home after three months. Hamida has sold three out of her seven goats for Rs 3500 for the food supplies and to pay for her younger son’s medical treatment.

Maifunisa from the village Aambari, Block Pothia was also given one pair of goats. She also sold one more goat for Rs 1500 for her own medical treatment. She feels that these goats give her sense of security, as she has no other asset.

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

Dear Friends,

Seasons Greetings from Azad India Foundation!

It is my pleasure to share our latest report via Global Giving 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, Azad India Foundation had given sewing machines to Anwari,Rumi and Radha from village Chattargach. 

The project team revisited therir home after 6 months to see the impact of the donation. With her sewing machine Anwari is earning Rs 8000 -10,000 (approx. $100-120) per month by taking orders from the local tailors and support her family.

Radha  is earning Rs 4000-4500 (approx. $75) per month from her sewing machine.

Rumi from village  Miyabasti is earning Rs 6000-6500 (approx. $90) per month supporting her family.

They get orders from  nearby villages and local tailors also give them work.

Anwari, Radha and Rumi are thankful to the donors and Global Giving for their support.

Azad India Foundation is now running three sewing centers at the village Chattargach, Bahadurganj and Kishanganj where 100 girls are learning basic stitching and tailoring. It is six-month course following which a girl can start earning from her home. As most of the girls belong to marginalized sections of the community they are unable to buy machines. This project helps them to realize their dreams.

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,

Radha
