Self-Empowerment Reduces Poverty

Sewing machines and rickshaws are provided indiscriminately to the poor, enabling impoverished men and women to support their families and contribute to their community. Recipients are able to pay of debt, improve their living conditions, provide daily meals for their family, and send their children to school.

Literacy Courses

Students in literacy courses are taught a skill that dramatically increases their income, and is relevant to the community where they live. These skills include learning to sew and garden, as well as making incense, soap, candles, baskets, leaf-plates and other items that can be sold at the market. The courses also include basic math and the importance of saving, so the students are equipped to develop their own business.
