ROSI Foundation has been requested for erase her tear and problem. Then we deeply observe her conditions and the children education. Mainly her two girls are adolescents, who are also under risk of sex abuse and school drop. It would make them in to childlabour engagement, sex exploitation and working place violence. But we have taken immediate step in the matter. Ms.Sarthmabal was undergone by free skill training on garments making. After she was trained, garments business input (sewing machine, accessories, furniture, cloth, etc) was provided to her. Now she is earning $2-$3 daily that is useful to survival and preventing the external people intervention and working place violence if the work is owned to her. We have also supported to her children’s education needs for one year. So the hunger and economical crisis are prevented. Risk of educational drop out and child labour creation are averted from the family. Mainly the adolescents’ girls have been forestalled from abuse and victims condition.
