Imagine one day losing everything you hold dear to yourself. When Sajida bibi heard the news of her husband’s passing, she cried for a month. 25 at that time Sajida and her children went through crucial times, while remembering those days she said

“My in laws were not supportive and they asked me to leave the home.Soon after the death of my husband,  I started learning different skills like stitching and embroidery which helped me a lot afterwards”

Under our ‘Empowering Widows in Need’ project,  she has been listed as trainer for providing training to other women in one of the skill centers “Hunar Ghar” in Barakahu, Islamabad. Many women from  the locality are enrolled in Sajida’s center to learn new skills.

“I love spending  my  day here at the skills center, many women visit me for working and learning opportunities.  I believe that us women can achieve whatever we dream of with hard work and determination.”
