I was working part-time at an embroidery workshop to support my education when my friend Yogini introduced me to SEWA(Self Employed Women’s Association) which I then joined as a Coordinator. SEWA organizes self-employed women workers across 13 Indian States in the informal economy towards two major goals of full employment and self-reliance in India.
Initially, my SEWA jobs helped me complete my education. But since then, I have become a part of the SEWA family for the last 18 years. I help women find solutions to the problems regarding their work, be it government associations, loans or technology related queries. I initiate partnerships with the private and government sector organizations whenever we require any support. My husband works in a workshop and has always supported me at every step.
I am managing the Airbnb accommodation at the DhrangadhraCommunity center. It represents 50,000 salt-pan workers in the Little Rann of Kutch. Come stay with us and immerse yourself in the Gujarati way of life. Experience the local art and interact with the local communities!
