What does it take to help the poorest women escape extreme-poverty?
Working with thousands of women, or didis as we call them, we've realized that a simple act of teaching her to run a shop, to farm her own small plot can drastically change her life. For her, it means everything because when we met her she had nothing. Today our didis generate income not only to feed their family, but also to educate their children, save for health needs, and become self-reliant.
When caring people like you give.
Here are living joyous examples of what can happen when people like you and me give, when trained professionals teach the poorest and when didis decide it is now their time
When we met Asha didi she had just given birth to her 4th daughter while she was already struggling to feed her first 3 kids. She had no choice but to migrate and earn by carrying bricks. we asked her to join us. she brought her courage, we brought her skills and people like you supported her. today, she feels a huge relief - she runs her own shop which feeds her children.
When we met her she was still mourning the loss of her husband in an accident during migration. She was surviving because her village supported her. when we asked her to join our program, she jumped at the chance. She had the enthusiasm of a child. today, she farms her own land and just sold her first full harvest. she stands on her own feet because of support from people like you.
Before working with we/can Lakshmi didi had a ₹30,000 loan on her head. This loan forced her to migrate and work for a money lender year after year. To repay this loan, she lifted 1000 bricks a day for 6 months every year. Still, the loan would not go away. Today she has repaid the rest of the loan and has started saving every month for her child’s education and health.
