Anjum Ansari

“My name is Anjum Ansari; I am 42 years old and I’ve been coming to Sambhali since July 2013. I am married and have 3 children, 15, 12 and 24 years old. Before coming to Sambhali I was only allowed to work at home, and it was a struggle to support my children. I heard about Sambhali from the teachers who work here and wanted to come so that I could learn new skills and earn some money. I have learnt so much since coming here; I can make different things and can keep some money for myself. The best thing are the women I work with – they are like my sisters and I have not had this kind of support before. Even if nothing can be done, they help me by understanding that we all have the same problems. Sambhali is good because it has given me independence and all women should have this.”
