I am pledging my birthday to help mothers in rural India start their own independent enterprises.



“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” — Diane Mariechild.
I am turning 21 in a few days. I strongly believe that nothing can be more meaningful and satisfying in life than service. Hence, I am pledging my 21st birthday for a cause that could revolutionalise rural India.Women in India have always been suppressed with lack of education, opportunities and independence. If we could help them gain confidence
and give them the required support to help them stand on their own feet, we could really begin contributing tiny drops to the massive ocean. I believe that changes always happen in small steps and here are a few lives we can transform!
Lalbiakzangi from Mizoram. Madhuben Kanthibai from Gujarat. Kavitha from Tamil Nadu and Rekha from Karnataka. A tea-stall owner, a small cloth-selling business owner, and two women from different locations who rear goats. What links them all? Every single one of them is running a small enterprise in order to ensure that their children have the future that they could only dream about growing up.
For these women, due to different social and financial circumstances, they weren't able to follow their dreams when they are young. Now, they know the pressing need for education and how it can open doors that are very necessary. In order to educate their children, they set up small businesses either to supplement their husbands' incomes or as the sole wage earner. Rekha is a former Devadasi woman who is building a new life with the help of MASS (a Milaap field partner). Proud mother of one, she is determined that her daughter will not be condemned to the same life that she herself led.
Milaap, together with four of its field partners – MASS, Prayas, WSDS and GMF – aim to fulfil the dreams of these mothers. With a small loan from you, we can truly honour these mothers the way they deserve!Small contributions from your side can spur the wheel of change in another's life.
Thank you for all your support!
