Hell broke loose when Nazima’s husband left her and their three daughters for worse. Hence Nazima had to undertake desperate measures to survive. She worked extremely hard to make ends meet.
She worked as a house maid by day and an agarbatti maker by night, making barely RS 2000 a month. But her life took a better turn one day when she came to know about Yuva Parivartan through door to door flyers. She took a decision to join the tailoring course at YP. According to her that was the best decision of her life. As soon as her course got done Yuva Parivartan placed her in Star Garments where she earns RS 6000/month. She is extremely content now as she can afford her daughters’ education and give them the life they deserve.
Yuva Parivartan and ABC Consultants have been partners for 1 year now. ABC Consultants sponsors the training of underprivileged youth in various parts of India. Their partnership with ABC consultants has strengthen over the year with regular participation from the ABC management and employees.
Taking this alliance to the next level, Yuva Parivartan was provided the opportunity to showcase the products, made by youth from tribal Rajasthan, at the ABC Annual Meeting held at the Fairmount Hotel in Jaipur.
Citing this opportunity, the Yuva Parivartan Rajasthan team worked tirelessly to organise the event and arrange the product stalls. The YP West Bengal team was also invited to exhibit the products made by the students at Alipore Correctional home, a women’s prison in West Bengal.
The exhibition proved to be a success as most of the exhibited products were bought by the ABC employees, raising more than Rs. 13,000.
This has encouraged the Rajasthani and the Bengali women to produce more products. The Yuva Parivartan is also motivated and excited by this opportunity and will be organizing a similar exhibition at the next ABC Annual Meeting scheduled in June.
