Posted February 19, 2021 from India
we have work for everyone who want to work .Nothing is waste at chhapekari we make our tags and traditional sparrow hangings and birthday buntings with waste clipping of fabric.

During pandemic  many other women's and my life  had taken a new turn .I was running a free school for deprived girls who never been to school but due to virous story we temporary gave Break to classes.Being a responsible Humanbeing we helpd many families with ration , cloths and daily necessity .Day after day demands were increasing .It made me so disturbed .people were in trouble they lost their jobs and it was quite tough to manage houehold expenses with big families.I thaught asking for the donations  is not a sustainable solution . I called my friend and discudsed about my brainstorm . she gave confirmation to support me we were going to start a small venture where we wanted to give training to make them capable to earn. I was so passionate to help these families my sleep was gone. Finally i borrowed 15000 rs from my husband with the assurance of return back. we  gave traing of fabric printing and stitching to girls and their mothers .we stitched many diffrent items like mask different type of bags , lounge wears and indian dresses .we mafe a broad cast list and start sending pictures of our work. people love our products and it was fantastic response .It motivat me and my supportive team we are getting many orders from many cities and states .we are so happy that we could bring change in these women 's life now they .Now they raises their own expenses with proud. No need to spread hands .we love the place where we work and named it "chhapekari we have immense power to change our and others life .Nothing is impossible .

Dear Mahima,

This is so beautiful to read. What an amazing achievement born out of the necessity to teach the women how to fish instead of just giving them fish all along.
I am grateful to your husband for the start up loan; you are definitely a changemaker worth celebrating. Keep doing all you do
Hugs, Marie

Dear Mahima,
Congratulations for the admirable venture. By providing the women skills, they can now earn an income. They will not be dependent on others. That is empowerment. The stuff toys, bags and prints are nice. I wish them luck in their business.
Thanks Mahima for sharing this inspiring story.
Huggs.
