Sudara Stories: Swartha

We love sharing stories of the women who, as part of a skills-training program, sew together PUNJAMMIES®. The Sudara Stories series highlights a few of these strong, amazing women. Today, we are honored to introduce Swartha.

Swartha came to one of the Sudara partner sewing centers after her mother pressured her to prostitute herself at the local temple.  Like many of the women at the centers, Swartha’s family lived in poverty. And, once she came of age, her family wanted her to contribute to family finances. She has dreams of one day working in technology, though, and is working to make a new life for herself and her family.

Thank you for continuing to invest in and empower women like Swartha. Your support is helping her create a new life for herself — a life that is free from sex-slavery and full of hope.
