She came to us 5 months after the death of her husband. She has 3 children. Hasta Kumari herself was not well most of the time. She had been to hospital many times for her treatment. She did household work for others and only just survived. It was a difficult time for her.
Now we are supporting her with room rent, and child benefit for 3 children.
At Grace Women’s home we gave training for women’s empowerment, she felt she can do work. So, as you know, we have a saving group. She took the loan from the group Rs, 5000 (£35/$50). Then ran a small tea and snacks shop near by her room. She is doing good business at that. She can sell the worth of around 1500 rs per day. She already returned back Rs. 5000 plus interest. On this month she took again Rs. 20000 from the group and she wants to expand the shop.
Nowadays she is happy and also no need to go the hospital frequently like before and is easily providing for her family too.

Here are photos of our women participating in training given to them at Grace Women’s Home. It’s great to see that some of the women are standing at the front themselves and fully taking part. They are clearly feeling empowered and it’s great to see.

On Sunday Manju, one of our very bright and talented staff members, organised a training needs identification day at Grace Women’s Home. It was incredibly well attended by so many of our ladies. Manju did a wonderful job listening to them and encouraging them to identify how WWR can further help them. There will be training to follow.

We are pleased to be able to take care of a lady with HIV at our Grace Women’s Home – her former husband transmitted the disease to her. She moved in last week and we provided all the ladies at the home training and education about HIV/Aids and how best to take care of her. Here they are discussing the issues.
