This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, Anchal Project is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.
We invite you to join the movement and begin your holiday season with a meaningful donation. Our goal for this Giving Tuesday is to reach $1200 in order to sponsor Anchal artisan Pooja. Your sponsorship will provide her with job training, education courses, materials, a fair living wage and access to the artisan program. However big or small, your donations will help make true impact in Pooja's life:
Pooja is a 22-year old artisan who has been with Anchal for a little over a year. She works incredibly hard to support her children and is saving her income to continue to send her children to school. Pooja herself was forced to drop out of school in the 5th grade to earn an income and help support her family.
Left with little education, a family to care for and no money, she didn’t have many options – until Anchal. Pooja is able to earn 100% more working with Anchal as an artisan and loves the freedom of being able to work from home and watch after her children. She hopes to one day provide them with a new home.
Pooja thanks the Anchal program and this new community of women for helping her become more confident. She learns from senior artisans and now realizes that anything is possible.
When asked what she would say to Anchal customers, Pooja simply stated, "You brought sustenance into our lives, thank you."
On this day of national giving, will you help us reach our goal and kick-off the season of giving? Your generosity can empower change! Donate Here then share your contribution on social media using #GivingWithAnchal.
