It’s a story of Dariya Devi. She lives in Barmer city of Rajasthan. Dariya Devi is 34 years old homeless widow. She has three children, 2 sons and one daughter, dependent on her. Her elder son is mentally retarded. We found her begging at railway station of Barmer with her children. In response, Dhara Sansthan team helped in opening her bank account and enrolled her for widow pension scheme. Now she is getting 500 INR per month in her account, still its too difficult for a widow homeless lady to survive with 3 children on 500 rupees. During interaction we found her strong and enthusiastic woman. She has the skills and capabilities to do her own business.
In response, we want to generate funds to start her own small business, so that she can start self-earning instead of doing begging. She is interested in opening a vegetable shop in the city, for that she required a rickshaw trolley and initial capital investment of 15000 rupees. It will help her to make her self-employed and live dignify life. Also, it helps her giving a better life to her children.
We request you to contribute for this humanitarian cause. Your small efforts will help in change the life of four people together.
