Financial independence for women
Sandhya is a part of our social enterprise, a livelihood programme for women at Basin Bridge. She says, “My husband lost his job and was at home for the past 6 months. Since I was part of Oasis’ social enterprise, I was able to take care of my family with the salary I received from stitching products. I also have an industrial machine at home with which I stitch blouses and kurtas for others. We were fortunate to not suffer from my husband’s unemployment only because my skill empowered me to be financially independent. I love that I have this opportunity and I would like for all girls to never stop learning or working. They should learn to be independent even after they are married.”
Like Sandhya, women with equal economic rights and opportunities are an inspiration for girls growing up around them.
