Progress Report

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Azad India Foundation!

It is my pleasure to share our latest report via GlobalGiving on the progress of our project to provide sewing machine to a needy girl for self-reliance in Kishanganj district of Bihar.  Thank you for your support and for empowering women to rise out of poverty. A sewing machine may be a simple gift but it is life changing for many women and their families. 

As a part of the ongoing livelihood support program, AzadIndia Foundation had given sewing machine to Rumi from village Miyabasti,Chattargach. 

 Indian government had announced complete lockdown in the month of March for more than four months in response to Covid19 pandemic. Many people especially those living in the poor and marginalized communities are still facing extreme hardships and economic distress. The situation is grim in the rural areas where majority of people are dependent on agriculture and work as landless labor and other odd jobs.

The project team revisited Rumi’s home after 3 months. She is still unable to get regular orders from the local tailors. Her monthly income has reduced to Rs 1500-2000 that is way less she was making before Covid pandemic.But she is hopeful that things would improve and her life will return to normal.

Thank you for giving chance to succeed! Your gift is making a big impact in not only their life but given hope others as well. Even a small donation has a potential to empower the whole family to earn sustainable income.

 

Do contribute to help us give life of dignity to more disadvantaged girls and please spread the word.

 

Warm Regards,
