Dear Donors,

*Help these victims of domestic abuse live a life of Dignity*

Chaakri, a fully volunteer-run organisation, was launched in 2005 to promote employment and support to women in the rural district of Raigad. All the women come from marginalized backgrounds. Chaakri signifies ‘seva’ and ‘service’ in the Hindi language. A social enterprise, the employed women are trained to make khakhras. Today these khakhras are sold not only in India but internationally too, a matter of great pride for these women.  Devi Gupta is one such woman. Physically and mentally abused for years by her husband, Devi has had a really tough past. After her husband's demise due to alcoholism, Chaakri holistically supported Devi by not only giving her a job but becoming her support system for everything - children's education, health, counselling, financial management, etc. Today, Devi lives a life of confidence and dignity. And has become the support of many other women in her village.   Chaakri employs 90 women as of now.
