Allah is known as Yasmin. She is bringing up her 12-year-old daughter by herself as she is a widow with all the expenses to find on her own rent, education and school fees, plus household and food bills. She has no family support. She was able to be independent and had worked in an old peoples’ home, but now, with bone and skeletal issues she cannot work. Right now, they live together in 1 room with her daughter going to government school. Since attending the project, she has become more stable and having less distress at not working because she has been getting emotional support and making new friends to share her experiences at the weekly meetings, and therefore is managing her emotions.
“Every woman has a right to being treated fairly and equally and to be independent. We could not have done this without your kind support and contribution to this project. We thank you.”
“I truly believe the only way we can create global peace is through not only educating our minds, but our hearts and our souls.”
