You have given Rashi a way to thrive.

Women who live rurally in India have almost twice the level of illiteracy as men. Thankfully there is some change in children today, but for adults, they missed their chance.

Rashi grew up in poverty and had only a little schooling. She learned household chores, caring for the chickens and helped with her siblings. Education was an unaffordable luxury. She was married young and soon had a family. Her husband is a day laborer and began to drink to escape the difficulties of life. This means they rarely have enough food in the house and hard decisions trouble them, like whether the children stay in school or work in the field alongside the mother so that can earn a little money and help pay for the food they eat.

When you Give a sewing machine to a mom in India you provide the training and the equipment needed for a woman like Rashi to start her business. She does not get rich, but you empower her to earn her own income and use it to take care of her family in times of difficulty. It also means that she is at home when the children need to study and can give them the support they need to succeed.

Thank you for being the difference for Rashi and other women like her that lack the means to support themselves. You are their catalyst for change.
