About Me

I am a 43 years old woman, a wife and a mother of one girl aged 21 and 3 boys aged 18, 17 and 10.

Dispite poverty and
disrimination against educating girls, I braved the odds and got myself education to the university level from a rural home. I was the first girl in our community to go to the university.
I broke the silence about discrimination on girls' education. Today, many girls have gone to the university in that community just because I proved it is possible.

In my new found community, I am surrounded with women who never went to school due to this discrimination. They live desperate lives. I got concerned to do something to change their situation. I do empower them and their lives change to the positive. This act has earned me a training opportunity with Empowerment Institute in the NYC, USA.
