"My husband and I used to migrate to cities for labour work for many years. Then, with help from Sahaj, I started making handicraft products at home, stopping my migration and resulting in my children attending school. Over time, I helped my husband start his small enterprise."
Vaji Minama, Bandibar
"Sahaj is my second home. I feel happy and energetic here. As a family, we share happiness and sorrows of our lives. Due to my handicraft work, my husband could purchase a rickshaw. We were also able to make changes in our cropping patterns resulting in increased income from farming."
Rasila Damor, Tindori
"Losing hope from earning through our traditional bamboo basketry, I used to migrate to cities for work. After I joined Sahaj, I received a number of trainings, attended various design workshops & design institutes, and worked with designers from NID and IIT. My handicraft skills have immensely improved."
Jayanti Pithaya, Ranapur
"I was unable to study much, but by working at Sahaj, I got an opportunity to learn computer, production management and quality control along with handicrafts. I am a witness of my own growth and glory. All the important decisions of my family are now taken by me. I am proud of myself."
