Latika, 13, had not even dreamt that she would go to school – partly because the nearest government school was very far. She used to earn a living as a rag picker in the City. Today she studies in the Sun City Government Primary School, thanks to the safe transport provided by the Action Centre for Transformation (ACT). “We are a family of seven members – me, my husband and five children. Survival in the City is extremely difficult. Latika has to work to support the family. Being a girl, she is not permitted to travel alone, be it for her education or any other purpose,” says Latika’s mother, a resident of Ghata Village. At school, Latika is beginning to get a sense of direction on her further studies and employment opportunities. Her shining eyes now carry the hope of a better and more secure life.
You know ACT is totally self initiated and self driven organisation. Most of our women clusters are self funded.We work in a very sustainable mode so that we can keep our work ongoing for a longer term. Recently this lady Pinky approached us and she wanted to have a similiar unit in her village for herself and other fellow women.Hence we thought to do a crowd funding to raise money to set up a center and do the skill based training. Therefore it will be great if you can support PinkI to reach the target amount to start the center.
