Meet Hema, a resilient soul from the heart of Tonk district in Rajasthan. Her journey, marked by the harsh realities of domestic abuse and the quest for employment through migration, has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. In the bustling realm of daily wage labour, Hema fought tooth and nail to provide for her family, grappling with the burden of unpaid rent and unfulfilled dreams for her children's education.

Atmanirbhar initiative by Naya Sawera NGO, came as a beacon of hope that transformed Hema's life. Armed with her stitching skills, she approached the initiative, which not only provided her with raw materials and a sewing machine but also fuelled her with a renewed sense of purpose.

With unwavering determination, Hema toiled day in and day out, turning raw materials into not just handicraft pieces but also into a stable income. Today, her hard work not only sustains her family but also paves the way for her children's education.

Hema's story is a testament to the power of resilience, community support, and the transformative impact of initiatives like Atmanirbhar.
