Someone might have offered you a helping hand when you were down anytime in your life, volunteering and donating for good cause gives you the opportunity to pay that favor forward. Contributing to a good cause gives us HAPPINESS that can’t be bought by any amount of money!!
I was having lunch last weekend with a few of my friends who have been a strong pillar of our lives directly and indirectly. We were having a discussion about "Women Empowerment" and this particular cause came in our discussion. They shared a great story on how a joining hand can make a huge difference to someone's lives & bring smiles on thousands.
Devi Gupta, is one such woman. Physically and mentally abused for years by her husband, Chaakri holistically supported Devi by not only giving her a job but becoming her support system for everything - children's education, health, counselling, financial management, etc. Today, Devi lives a life of confidence and dignity. And has become the support of many other women in her village. Chaakri employs 90 women as of now... With your help, Chaakri can employ many more such victims of domestic abuse and provide them with a life of dignity,
Chaakri, a fully volunteer-run organization, was launched in 2005 to promote employment and support to tribal women in a rural district of Raigad. All the women come from marginalized backgrounds & are trained to make khakhras. Today these khakhras are sold internationally, a matter of great pride for these women. Chaakri signifies ‘seva’ and ‘service’ in the Hindi language. “Privileged are those who support the less privileged” is their tagline, you can find more details on their website www.sanisa.org This organization help creating employment for needy women through the skill identification, motivation, capacity building, and innovation. It helps to create lots of employment opportunities for underprivileged women in a rural part of India.
Urge you to support this good cause & help them collectively raise money to empower underprivileged women!
