women’s empowerment Story

 

My father is a labourer who works on daily wages and it was difficult for him to make ends meet. However, things have changed now and our living standard is improving. I support my family by stitching clothes. Previously, we used to buy the groceries on daily basis, while now we purchase the groceries for the whole month and, in this way, we manage to save a lot of money. My focus is to ensure that my brothers go to school. I have passed my matriculation too and would want to continue with my further studies. But I am engaged to a boy and might get married soon on two conditions. Firstly, that after marriage my in-laws do not stop me to study further. Secondly, I will support my father until my brothers have grown up to bear the responsibility of my family.


We are a family of eight; six siblings and my parents. My father works in a factory in Karachi while my brothers are too young to work and both my sisters are married. I am grateful to the EU funded SUCCESS Programme for supporting me. I got to know about them through a social mobiliser from RSPN who visited our village. Later, we informed everyone in the village and consequently 21 girls from this village and other villages attended a training. In past, there used to be two women in this village before me who did the same work as I do. I save a little after deducting my expenses and hand the rest over to my mother for day to day expenses.
