On #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving, we will officially kick-off our Holiday Giving Campaign by sponsoring one artisan in 24 hours. Laxmi's story is only one of many artisans we hope to arm with the tools and confidence needed to gain independence. Here is her story:
Mother, didi and Anchal senior artisan Laxmi has dedicated the past 5 years to learning and thriving with Anchal’s holistic program. It was only last year Laxmi became a first time homeowner and left the sex trade for good.
Today, Laxmi continues to persevere by proudly paying for her daughter’s college education and breaking the cycle of exploitation.
“My oldest daughter just finished high school & has been accepted into a local college! She will begin classes in a few months. I am not educated but I want my daughter to be educated.”
However, Laxmi has in fact been educated alongside her children through her time with Anchal.
“I learned how to measure and calculate numbers. I never believed I could make something so beautiful. I want to heartily thank all the people who are supporting this cause and for their continuous efforts.”
Laxmi embodies the empowered businesswoman Anchal strives to nurture. With your support, we can promise Laxmi the opportunity to live a life of freedom and empowerment.
Will you join us on #GivingTuesday with a donation towards Laxmi's future?
