The woman of substance – Project WHY
As children decide the future of a nation, women make the present. Any country is known through the hard work and intelligence of its citizens. Women have always been the strength in all eras despite male dominance and domestic violence in society. Today, I am going to introduce you one such lady who is brave enough to lead life her own way. If a woman needs her maiden name or husband’s name to introduce herself, Renu needs her courage to define the life she leads.
Renu – The sewing teacher
Six years ago, when she joined Project Why, Renu had lost her home and incurred huge debts. Her husband got retrenched after an incapacitating work accident. After joining the Project Why sewing class, she started taking small jobs at home. She then grew into the role of the sewing teacher and began taking pride in her students. She is now paying back her debts and knows that she holds the key to her future in her hands. Her children study at the after-school support classes run by Project Why.
What is project WHY
ProjectWhy provides after-school support to underprivileged children, and also works on women’s empowerment, so they can support themselves and their children. Since 2007, over a 1000 women have been trained at the women’s centre sewing circle, including Renu, the sewing teacher.
Over the years, Project WHY has opened 7 after school support centres within underprivileged communities reaching out to 1100 children every year.
