“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 in 2012, I was very scared to go out of the house and walk on the roads. I feared something would happen to me.  But after SIDART, 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 waste 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.

I joined SIDART after hearing a lot about the organization from other women in the neighbourhood. I started attending meetings and realized that the organization is providing women with all the important information in a way which is very easy to comprehend. Since I don’t come from a family who needs permissions from the husband to go out of the house, I faced no problem in joining the organization as a SIDART Village Volunteer. I believed in the fact that I need to change or develop personally if I want the change or development in others. Additionally, I knew that attending such trainings would give me information that will always be useful for me and my fellow women. I want to continue being a SIDART Village Volunteer. Due to the persistent efforts of SIDART, my village is comparatively more developed, but I want to involve myself in the progress of other villages as well. There are no particular recommendations for SIDART but the efforts of the organization would be even more effective if the problem solving and follow up in the Panchayat meetings are regularized by the members of the Panchayat.
