During the COVID-19 lockdown, women living in the slums across India have faced tougher challenges, in addition to the daily struggles they already experience. For many, the restrictions on their livelihood has seen an adverse effect on their family’s income. Praise God, these women did not give up. The hope they’ve found through the launch of the Freedom project has enabled them to look forward fearlessly.
Just a few highlights include:
- The Nari-Dana project has been operating for two days a week since the beginning of the pandemic. Many women are continuing to work from home when they can’t attend the production centres.
- The women have been busy producing masks for various big buyers including Larsen & Toubro and SASHA amongst others.
- Transport and food allowances have been provided to enable the women to attend centres during the lockdown period.
