Each woman’s contribution counts in a self-help group
Gayatri Chandrawar is the president of a self-help group of ten members. She set up her self-help group, Geeta, with a very simple idea. She wanted to provide the women around her a means of livelihood. From stitching masks in the coronavirus pandemic to learning how to make elaborate cushion covers and intricate macrame work, she has enabled the women in Gorakhpur to find a sustainable source of income that makes each of them more independent.
