The story of Sahaitha
In a culture in which many of us live by expectations of others, are treated as mere work force, are taught to deny our feelings, and subjected to the crushing of what dreams we hold, we at Sahaitha invite people to experience love, care and deep friendships with each other.
We have worked in the same locality for well over a decade-and-a-half and have followed the community through many different seasons. A large proportion of the women coming to us are migrants who find it difficult to navigate life in the city. We seek to empower them through providing education and skills training, making sure they are registered and have necessary papers, and helping those who are sick to connect with the medical care they need.
We also engage with migrant children through non-formal educational support.
Under our literacy programs, we help women to attain basic literacy and train them in English and computers. We also help women to pursue higher-level classes or college degrees. We help women with their online applications and admissions, sorting out necessary documentation, and teach them their basic rights.
We offer informal education to children from migrant communities and tuition support to school-going girls.
Our skill-building classes include tailoring, cooking, and baking.
Our support groups are instrumental to help women find perspective and tools to overcome difficulties, especially in the areas of relationships, violence and family life.
