I am 35 years old. My husband was a Driver. He died in 2018 of Cancer. I had no family support. I live in a shared accommodation given to me by my brother-in-law. After my husband’s death, I started working as a housemaid in a nearby house and I was earning Rs. 5,000/- from it. Now my salary is Rs. 8,000/-.

Naila Baji, field officer from Ruhamaa Trust, visited me and filled up my application, and took relevant documents. Since then, Ruhamaa Trust is taking care of all the educational needs of my three younger daughters.

“In current times when my own siblings did not stand by me; Ruhamaa was God sent. I am grateful to Ruhamaa Trust for helping me with ration and their continuous support for my younger three daughters’ education. When I got married, I never thought that I will become a widow and work in other people’s houses. I want my daughters to study and learn skills. So that they never have to depend on anyone but themselves.”
