STORIES THAT SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
We are constantly receiving full reports of the work we are sponsoring and we go to visit regularly ourselves. This means we really know how lives are transformed. These people become friends that we know and we see the difference. Here are their stories.
1. MILK COW REARING
Mrs.Pandiammal (June 2016)
One of our dobby-village widows is Mrs.Pandiyammal. She can use a sewing machine but her income is very small. She therefore tried for additional employment in a spinning mill but because she is a widow she was not allowed by her parents to go outside the home for work. She therefore approached RICH, explaining that she had 12 years experience in Milk cow rearing and so was supplied with cow and calf. RICH learnt that two cows per family would enable a continuing income. She is overjoyed because she cannot get a loan from any source given her remote village.
2. The Old Charcoal-burning Villagers:
Saranya (August 2019)
Saranya (Age 27) has grown up in an unstable environment where she has been seeing her parents arguing all the time. Her parents were charcoal burners who worked hard to earn bread for their family. Since Saranya’s father has illegal relationships with other women, one day her mother caught her husband red-handed. As she was not able to handle the pressure she poured cooking oil on herself and burnt herself to death. When Saranya returned from her school (she was still only 14) she saw burning flames coming out of her home where she found her mother in midst of the fire. It was too late for Saranya to rescue her mother.
A week after Saranya mother’s death her dad marry another women. Saranya found it difficult to be with her step mother because she tortured her mentally and physically. By the time Saranya was 17 years old she was longing for love and affection from people around her. She found her soulmate and she eloped, married and they now have two children. Saranya has only known charcoal burning and she works hard with her husband but they struggle to feed their kids.
That’s when RICH found Saranya and enrolled her in the Tailoring training program. After 6 months now she has her own sewing machine .Also she now has a good job in one of the many local Garment making companies. She is now half-time self-employed too so she is overjoyed to have become an independent women who can support her family emotionally and financially.
