Village Baur, Taluka Mawal

V.C.D.M facilitators one day held a meeting in my village so that we could discuss our problems, I was one of the attendee. I understood very quickly the possibilities open to me. I wanted to participate in other meetings of this kind but before that I had to ask permission from my in-laws.

At first, I was hesitant, shy, I could not express myself freely at these gatherings. Then gradually, thanks to the support of the animators, I manage to surpass these blockages and to be an integral part of these meetings. It was magical ! I myself initiated this type of meetings in my village as well as in neighboring villages. At that time, it was urgent for me to work on the subjects of the female health and women’s rights. I organized workshops in my village, with the help of V.C.D.M, I called experts on these issues, it was a great success! Then, I started tailoring classes so that women become economically independent. I have also worked for the cause of widows and people without roofs.

I saw with my own eyes that my efforts had sown new seeds. The villagers began to express themselves, to think for themselves, to take initiatives to solve their problems !
