I would like to share the story of Diksha with you.
Diksha lost her father recently, her mother is wage labour. she has one younger brother and one younger sister. So, her whole family depends on her mother. Diksha is the student of class 8th her school is very far from her home. She is the elder sister in family, So she has to do household work, apart from her study. She also has to take care of her younger sister and brother. Diksha did not get enough time for her study. After school she always get tired. She belongs to low-Income family, She can not buy a bicycle. Because of Mann Deshi bicycle, she is able to go to school on time. She is a merit student in class. Now, she has dreams of becoming a doctor.
Diksha says: “ I am going school on time with the help of cycle and saving my time for study, Thanks to Mann Deshi for much- needed support.”
Nita is one of our goat paravets. She was recruited from the Dahiwadi branch. Her family’s financial condition was very poor. Although her home was 7 kilometres from the branch office, she would walk there every day to collect equipment, and from there walk further to respond to the calls she received from goat farmers. She would often carry the nitrogen container for AI straws on her head, as she barely had any money to spare for travelling costs. She would receive several calls for vaccinations and artificial insemination, but was unable to keep up with the demand, as she could not walk such long distances on a daily basis.
Assessing the situation, we decided to give Nita a bicycle so that she would not have to walk such distances anymore. Now, she firmly ties the nitrogen container and her other equipment to the cycle and travels freely to respond to calls. Her work has improved greatly and she is now able to reach more goat farmers. She does all her work now with the help of her cycle and says she is grateful to Mann Deshi for much-needed support.
