, “I come from the village Phagi and I have been living in a rental house for 19 years.  I recently shifted to my own house. Ms. Asha came to me with the request to work as a village volunteer which I accepted. In my village people face a lot of problems related to sanitation and water, I formulated women group/ women collective especially all those who were facing the problem. And with the help of Panchayat and Panchayat Samiti, I took help of all the village women and solved the issue. I got the strength to make a difference from SIDART’s learning and exposure visits, and I hope with their help, we empower more women in villages of India. ”

“I am from village Phagi. It’s been 14 years since I got married and I am a housewife. I am a Senior Secondary pass out. Earlier I was not associated with social work but once I went to a Panchayat meeting, I learned to write applications and participate in social issues meetings. I tried to spread awareness there. Once I also wrote an application to the Sarpanch for sanitary issues, they got resolved for some time but the problem cropped up again. Then I wrote an application to BDO under Right To Information Act and the issue was resolved for good. I learnt a lot from Pramila ma’am, I am thankful to SIDART for everything they have done and are continuing to do for women empowerment. Now I am empowered to bring about an impact and help other women in the community. Thank you

I joined SIDART 3 months ago, when I witnessed the SIDART training at my house for the first time. Before SIDART, I was a shy and insecure girl who hesitated to speak up in front of an audience. But now, I am a confident individual who can coordinate an entire event, raise her voice in Panchayat Meetings and assist others to become empowered. As far as the women in village are concerned, the customs of hiding face behind a veil or ghoonghat has become an uncommon sight. Women now, understand the need for becoming self dependent and empowered individuals. I plan to continue my education and aspire to become a teacher.

Before joining SIDART, I was very scared to go out of the house and walk on the roads. I feared something would happen to me.  But after, I have become the most confident I have ever been. I don’t think twice before walking out of the house and furthermore, I can travel to different cities without any fear. As far as the village is concerned, before SIDART came into the picture, the women didn’t know a thing about sanitation. Frequent practices of throwing dump in the open, waste water on the roads, and poor water management were observed. But the efforts of SIDART have made a major difference. Women are now more careful with the use of water. Apart from learning the importance for managing water, the women are more aware about the sanitation and hygiene needs of the village. I want to finish my degree and eventually work in the laboratory. I enjoy this kind of work that I am doing now.
