When Nouziya was young, her future looked very promising as she was studying fashion designing; but all of that took a back seat when she got married. Nouziya struggled to raise her two children with no financial help from her alcoholic husband.
As time went on, Nouziya’s situation only deteriorated and she had no choice but to make the difficult decision of separating from her husband. Her father encouraged her to start working to take care of herself and her family. Nouziya was great at assembling clocks and selling them which helped her earn a little money.
Life became better for Nouziya when she joined our Partner’s vocational tailoring course in India. She was in wonder at every new thing that she was able to learn and was ecstatic when she was appreciated by the tutors for her efforts. This encouraged her. Nouziya now stiches different kurthas (tops) for her daughter and is able to use her skills for generating income.
Unlike many other families, Nouziya’s father and her family are behind her in every step of the way as she takes efforts to stand on her own feet.
