Pooja is Sponsored!
Pooja is a 23-year old artisan who is expecting her first child this year. Her biggest worry now is her unborn child's future and making sure she will be able to provide food, clothes and shelter.
When Pooja first joined Anchal's program, she was very timid and reserved, always covering her face with her sari and keeping to herself. The change in her demeanor after only a year is impossible to miss. The sari has been dropped from her face and she exudes joy and playfulness. She willingly interact with the other artisans, cracks jokes and was consistently smiles while working.
Pooja is currently living in the kitchen of a shared home, dreams of building her own house. She saves a portion from every paycheck to make this dream a reality. Pooja recognizes the importance of hard work and willingly shares her appreciation for the people supporting her and buying her products,"My talent is always increasing. I am proud my name is on the pieces and I am proud it is seen around the world."
