Pooja is a weaver and has been with Village Ways Charitable Trust for over a year. She is married with two children, a
boy and a girl. Her husband works away from home, and weaving enables her to earn a second income which helps to create a
better life for her family.
“I like working with Village Ways Charitable Trust. I realized if I wanted to better my children’s lives I
needed to stand on my own feet and earn a living. I enjoy weaving, it is a lovely skill. I feel that if I continue to get
this work I will be able to support my family. I want to educate my children so they can have a better life. I enjoy working
with Village Ways Charitable Trust. They give us pride of work and income. We feel respected. Weaving these beautiful scarves
gives us so much hope, a hope of a better life for our children.”
