India

Geeta works in New Delhi. The oldest of 7 children, she had to leave school early to help support her family.  She began studying making jewellery even without any knowledge.  

Geeta now helps to teach other women in her community. The fair wage she earns has enabled her to help support her family, and to continue sending her younger siblings to school.

 

Punam sits among friendly faces and colorful saris, smiling and proud of her contribution. Two years ago, Punam learned to bead from a family artisan cooperative in her neighborhood, and since then they have helped her family earn enough to survive. Punam’s family could not afford the dowry for her marriage - her mother is sick and her father cannot work regularly due to a chronic illness. Since working, she was able to pay her dowry as well as her mother’s medical treatments. Working in the cooperative means she is able to provide for herself as well as her family while remaining in a safe, caring environment.
