Anusha doesn't have to worry about paying rent now

Covid-19 has slammed India, causing a crisis for families already living in poverty. Along with avoiding the virus, people also have to worry about how they will work to afford food and housing.

This was the case with Anusha. Her father died eight years ago and her sisters moved elsewhere to get married, leaving Anusha to be the only breadwinner in her household. Making rent payments was a sorce of constant stress for her family, as they live in a poor village with limited income opportunities. 

Then, she reached out to the tailoring school program and was accepted! Now, because of your generosity, Anusha has learned many new stitches and patterns. She also has received a sewing machine to take home to start her own tailoring business. This would't be possible without your generosity! 

"I am confident that now I can earn money to support my family and to live. The tailoring school turned out to be a great blessing not only to me, but to many women in our village. We are grateful for you." -Anusha

Now more than ever, it is so important to empower women living in poverty. The Covid crisis has devastated rural villages, but your support for women like Anusha mean income is one less thing a family has to worry about. Thank you!
