I have been a proud member of SEWA (Self Employed Women’s Association) for the past 17 years. SEWA organizes self-employed women workers across 13 Indian States in the informal economy towards two major goals of full employment and self-reliance in India. I studied up to seventh grade and used to work as an agricultural worker before getting married. My life could have been just another story of a rural woman before I joined SEWA and started taking part in community awareness campaigns and activities. I gained a lot of self belief and confidence through activities of SEWA. Students from various parts of the country like Assam and Uttaranchal have stayed with me and family when they interned with SEWA. They loved chatting with my mother-in-law and she loved that experience. Now, we're looking forward to hosting more guests from across the world. Come stay with us and we can exchange interesting stories and can also showcase the work we’re doing; the ecotourism center, the radio station and involve you in our daily activities.
