Rinku Vishwakarma

India Helps team members visited Rinku Vishwakarma today.
She lives in Sion Koliwada in a tiny room, with her one and a half year old daughter. Her landlady was kind enough to take us to her.
Today was the first month anniversary of her husband's passing away. Rinku is barely 24-25, has studied upto grade 8 and is literate. She knows how to stitch and is keen to start earning a living. Her brother from the village is down to live here with her.
She seems to be a strong person and knows that she has to take charge of her life now.
Our efforts will be to get her some vocational training and eventually a job. If anyone knows of any organisation/NGO that could provide her with training of any sort which would eventually result in a job, please do let us know.
Also if anyone would like to help her financially, do let us know and we will send you the details.
