Name: Safia
"Zakia Khatib, a trustee of WIT told me about this place. As I was always interested in embroidery, I took up a job here. Working at WIT has supported me a lot. When my husband had a heart attack I did not have to ask any of my relatives for financial help.
Many of the women here have family problems which we sit and solve together. Today my son is educated and a graduate in computers."

Name: Banu
"I have been working here since 1968. A neighbour of mine Farida Khatib told me about Ms. Kamila Tyabji. After meeting her, I joined the tailoring department and took care of the centre for 3 - 4 years. In 1987, Ms. Tyabji bought this land and the WIT centre was built in Panvel.
When my husband was sick and my children were young, my stitching money helped me take care of all household expenses. Today my children are educated and happily married because of the loans I got from WIT. WIT has given me a lot of support."

"I heard about the WIT centre and the courses offered from an uncle of mine. Initially I joined the toy making course and simultaneously learnt Marathi language. Thereafter my teachers have been extremely supportive and encouraging.

"A few years back, in Sawle, a village in Maharashtra, there were almost nil medical facilities and a low level of literacy rate. One of the families took a bold step and sent their daughter to the WIT Nursing School. They soon realized the value of education both socially and economically. Today, 10 girls from the same village have graduated from the WIT Nursing School. All are employed and regularly conduct camps in their community as well as in the surrounding villages."

"Prabha Chopde came to WIT from a remote village. She was staying with her brother and sister-in-law who made her do all the household work and did not allow her to study further. Her brother helped her to apply for the Nursing course at WIT. But her sister-in-law followed her to WIT and demanded that the authorities not grant her admission. But she was selected and helped during the 1 and a half year training. Today, she is happily married and well settled at her new job at a private nursing home."
