You gave life-transforming skills to women in poverty at our tailoring schools! Your gifts paid the tuition for woman like Galam, a hard work mother of who is making a better life for her family.
Galam and her husband were desperate for work so they left their home village in search of a way to provide for their family. They ended up in a ramshackle shed in the slums, struggling to find enough food for their three children.
Galam heard about our tailoring school - a place where she could learn a valuable skill and earn an income to help support her family. By sponsoring her tuition, you gave Galam the opportunity to attend school and build a better life!
With this newfound skill and a sewing machine you gave her, Galam is able to help support her family and even made enough to move into a more suitable house and send her kids to school.
You invested in Galam, and in turn, made a tangible difference in the lives of her family!
Varsha’s life story is one of the many inspiring accounts of hope and resilience in the face of adversity. Varsha’s mother was a sex worker in the red-light districts and desperately wanted a better life for her daughter. Her mother gave her in marriage at the tender age of 12 in an effort to avoid the same fate. Varsha had her first child at 15 and her husband left her and her daughter when she was only 18 years old.
With little prospects and still desperate to keep her daughter from the sex trade, her mother enrolled her in a vocational training school for women that you support! Determined to succeed, Varsha excelled in the tailoring course and was soon named the “Star Performer” of her class. This recognition inspired her to work even harder towards her goals. Varsha learned to tailor bags, which landed her a job at a bag manufacturing and export company. With the income from her job, Varsha can now provide for herself, her child, and her mother. Her newfound employment has brought financial stability to her family and hope for a brighter future.
Varsha's life could have taken a path all too familiar for the daughters of sex workers in red-light districts. She could have fallen victim to the same fate as her mother and countless others, trapped in the dark world of human trafficking. Thank you for giving her a way out through your support of our Vocational Training Center, where she was able to gain the skills and education needed to create a brighter future for herself. With your support, we can continue to provide opportunities for young women like Varsha, offering them a chance to break free from the cycle of poverty and exploitation.
Thank you for helping women provide for their families by giving them a sewing machine and putting them through sewing classes! Women like Shyla are now able to work from home, caring for their children while making money by sewing.
Shyla’s husband is a daily wage worker and Shyla needs to stay home with their two small children. Two years ago, Shyla’s house and all their belongings burned down and they were facing homelessness and starvation. During this time, Shyla was suffering from depression because their situation seemed hopeless.
Your donation turned that all around for Shyla and her family! You paid for Shyla to receive a new sewing machine and 6 months of sewing classes for free. For the first time in a long time Shyla had hope that her and her family could make it through. Shyla is now able to care for her children and provide extra income. They were even able to build a small house on her brother’s land!
Thank you for caring about Shyla who lost everything. Because of you was she able to rebuild her life!
