My name is Sara, and I am from Vishrantwadi.

Some time ago, my father died, and after that we suffered some serious financial problems.

I heard about the project and the vocational training they give to girls. I went there to learn tailoring and how to stitch clothes. However, I learnt many things alongside the tailoring which were very useful, such as the premarriage and personality development workshops.

My mother is very happy to see me as a tailor.

I  feel  a lot of gratitude to the project and the karuna trust for the work they are doing to help those who want to overcome their problems. 

They are helping to empower women. I was empowered thought becoming financially independent. I now earn money from my tailoring work, and have confidence in my life and future.

I learnt that I woman can do anything. That means me.
