Sudara Stories: Swartha

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 joined the community of women at the Sudara sewing centers after her mother started pressuring her to prostitute herself at the local temple.  Like many of the women here, her family lived in poverty and, once she came of age, they 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 to create a new life for herself -- a life that is free from sex-slavery and full of hope.
