NEHA'S STORY


Neha and her husband have a daughter and a son. Because of ill health, 
she couldn't work in the fields to help her family earn much needed income.

Without an education, agricultural work is how most poor Indian 
women help with the family income. It is back-breaking work, and pays very little. 






As part of her Sister India class, Neha received small business training and 
learned how to make and sell products.  She prepared soaps and gave them
 to her husband to sell.

Neha's husband sold her soaps in the evening. Because of the high 
demand in a nearby tourist area, he could sell 50 to 70 soaps within two hours!

Neha and her husband were able to save some money and rent a building
near the tourist area to open their own shop. Thanks to your kind assistance, 
Neha can read, write and do the basic accounting she needs to 
take care of their shop.

It Takes a Village

    You’ve heard the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child,” but in this story, a little girl is making waves in hers.  Lily is a 12 year-old-girl who comes from a poor family in India. She is the third child of five with three other sisters and one brother.  Her father works as a mechanic earning very little; what money he does make is put toward his alcohol and tobacco addictions, leaving her mother to provide for the family. Lily’s mother earns 100-150 Indian rupees per day cutting pieces of cloth, which is roughly $1.44 to $2.15 American dollars. With this meager amount, she must provide for her family of seven.

Our teachers encouraged her and taught her literacy skills, and she is now able to read words in Hindi. Her teachers say that she continue
