Parvin’s Dream

This is Parvin Begum, she was married and had two baby boys. Unfortunately her husband married another woman and left Parvin and her two sons. They lead a miserable life for a couple of years and then she divorced him. She does not want to remarry. She dreams of sending her two sons to school but she does not have any money. So far she lead her family with the support of her brother who is also poor.

Last month, I met with her and asked her to learn sewing. She learned it in a month as she knew some before.

Tools for Underprivileged Women Empowerment

Sayed Hossain passed away 15 years ago, left four daughters and his wife. Two daughters are married and the rest are unmarried. His wife has aged now, his two daughters sew Nakshi katha and they are able make one katha per month and make 1500 taka. They lead measureable life with this small income. We gave one sewing machine to his talented daughter who learned how to operate the machine. This allows her to make dresses faster and now she earns 3000 taka per month. Hossain’s family is very happy. Furthermore, a wonderful event happened in her life. She got married and found a wonderful life partner.
