Dear all,

Over the last few months, we've been carrying out our distribution of sewing machines and training activities for the wives of farmers. It gives us immense satisfaction to say that we've empowered 60 widows or wives of farmers in last 8 months.

Here's Mr Shishir Mandya and Dr. Mane handed over the sewing machine to Smt. Sunita Pawar under our initiative of#NariSashktikaran of wives of Farmers i.e. Baliraja on 26.04.2016.

Last financial year we ensured school admission of Bhavana, daughter of Sunita Pawar. Our best wishes to Pawar family for better future.

Thank you all for your cooperation. Thank you donors, TBI, Milaap and Manabi who covered this initiative.
