International Women Day 8 March

"International Women's Day is March 8, and to celebrate amazing and strong women, we wanted to tell you about all the great work we've been doing at PUSPEM Foundation" This is a short story from “Bu Par” earthquake victims in Bantul Yogyakarta Bu Par (56 years) is the widow of the earthquake victim in Bantul Yogyakarta. When the earthquake struck Yogyakarta and its surroundings in 2005, Mrs. par has lived alone since her husband and son had died falling house building in the earthquake. Now Bu Par have already opened sewing clothes business at home with the help of venture capital is obtained from PUSPEM Foundation. Previously Mrs. Par is a sewing teacher for the PUSPEM program "Life Skills for Java Women and Children of Earthquake victims". After earthquake Bu Par lived alone in a tent on the ruins of his home, his job is only to collect wood and then sold on the market. With results like that sell the logs are not sufficient to meet the needs of everyday life. Owned sewing skills can not be implemented because there was no venture capital to create a sewing business. But now Mrs. Par life much better with a sufficient income from the business at home sewing clothes. Many thanks to the donors who have helped us, still many people like me who need help from you.
