It’s hard to generalise as each woman’s situation is different. However, the main priority is education for their children as they see this as a way in which their family can break out of the otherwise endless poverty that engulfs them.
Women’s India Trust (WIT) is a charitable organization established in the year 1968 by Ms. Kamila Tyabji. WIT started by training less privileged and unskilled women in Mumbai to stitch sari petticoats. Since then WIT has helped many women to develop skills and earn a regular income; this has changed their lives and the lives of their families.
