Sangeeta Sharma, Cuttack

Sangeeta is a single mother. Her husband has deserted the family since past 4 years. She has two sons and one daughter. Her sons are in Grade 12 and 8 while her daughter is in Grade 3. Sangeeta is now the sole breadwinner of the family.

Sangeeta does not have a fixed income. She is trying to earn her livelihood through making and selling pickle, pappad or providing tiffin service. Her monthly income is approximately Rs. 10000.

She lives with her two children in a rented house by paying a rent of Rs. 4500 pm in Cuttack. The eldest son lives with his maternal uncle in Jatni, around 50 kms from Cuttack. He studies while working part-time in the coaching centre of his uncle.

The family was hit hard by Covid-19. Sangeeta was barely able to sell her pickles or provide tiffin service. Her children without mobile and internet were struggling with their studies.

This is when The Amulya Jeevan Foundation came to the family's rescue. We provided monthly grocery support for four months to the family. The children were provided with two sets of mobile phones with one year internet service.

Sangeeta was also provided with Rs. 10,000 for resuming her business.

Rekha Das, Cuttack

Rekha's husband was an auto driver. He earned around 4000 rupees a month. Unfortunately, the husband died in an accident in Nov 2020. Her elder daughter, Runu is married and the younger one, Jhunu is in Grade 8. Currently, there is neither any male member nor any earning member in the family.

Runu, despite her own challenges in her in-laws side, is helping her mother with grocery items.

They live in a half constructed home with no luxury items. The family is in dire need as there is no source of income. 14-year-old Jhunu is in a vulnerable state, if not supported. She might end up marrying or engage as a child labourer.

We, at AJF, supported the family with three months' grocery and around Rs. 8000 for starting of a snack shop near their home.

The elder daughter, Runu was employed in a biscuit making factory near her home.

The younger one, Jhunu was supported with notebooks.
