Reflections from Amrapali


Hi! I am Amrpali staying at Bhim Ngar and regularly coming for women`s empowerment project`s life skill class.  I get knowledge and information from this project that even I am not from my mother and from my school. 

We learn lots more things from this project, such as how to behave and how to take care of our body. We also learn about cleanliness, crafts and computers -  I am very happy that now I can handle computers.  Sunita Tai taught me how to use a watch and calendar. She also gave us information regarding first aid, and even how to save someone if they are drowning. We also had sex education workshops through which I came to know many more things regarding our bodies. I also learnt meditation and pranayama (breathing yoga), and now I am doing it daily to increase my concentration power. I am grateful to the whole women’s team.
