Sonal Receives the Tools to Become Financially Independent

Sonal Chaudhary and her husband Mohan are both physically disabled and live in rural Ahmedabad in the state of Gujarat. She always found her disability challenging in many aspects of life, but it was particularly challenging financially. Sonal learned about Women Empowerment, supported by Share & Care and the Saurashtra Medical & Educational Charitable Trust (SMECT), and she immediately realized what a ray of hope it could be for her family. With Share & Care’s support, Sonal received 12 weeks of vocational training in embroidery, and upon completion, she received her own embroidery machine to begin working independently. She is now leading a dignified life, earning a comfortable income of Rs. 20,000 per month. The vocational training she received, as well as the additional training on budgeting, banking, and gender equality, have empowered Sonal and transformed her life. 

“I am grateful to Share & Care and Project Life for supporting me as a self-reliant, dignified, and confident woman.”
