HOW DONATION HELPED WOMEN Rachna (back to camera) hugs Oxfam Volunteer Snehlata Misra

"My ordeal has made me realize how important it is for women to be independent. I used to be very scared. Now I have the strength to fight for my child and the belief that I will take care of him independently." -Rachna, a domestic violence survivor, Uttar Pradesh.

Tortured by being locked in a room by her in-laws and husband and denied food for days, Rachna was often abused both physically and mentally. The family took her newborn son away and regularly asked her to leave home. Instead of being helped, she was left stranded near her parents’ house in an unconscious state. Now, through Oxfam India’s work, Rachna has begun counselling and is in the process of filling a case for her child’s custody.

Realizing Rachna’s need for economic independence, Oxfam India’s partner on the ground arranged for her to be trained in furniture polishing. While her family does not want to have anything to do with her, Snehlata Mishra, part of Oxfam India supported women volunteer group, treats her as her own daughter.

As Rachna braces for the fight to get her child back, she will need all the confidence and support to build a better future for her child and herself.
Your monthly donation is critical in gifting hundreds of women like Rachna, a better chance at life. And we cannot do it without your help.

 

HOW DONATION HELPED WOMEN Mynah’s sewing machine has been a trusted friend

 

"Come and get me" - a message sent by Mynah to her parents.

At one point Mynah tried committing suicide. Now, she is leading life on her own terms. Mynah was 9 when she was married to a 20-year-old man. Her husband repeatedly subjected her to sexual, physical and mental violence. When the pain became unbearable, she protested. In return, her husband began tying her hands and legs so that they would not inconvenience his nightly pleasures.

Oxfam India supported Mynah to file a case under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. Mynah has now remarried as per her own choice and is pursuing post-graduate studies. She hopes to get a government job—possibly join the police so that she can help women like her.
Your monthly donation is critical in providing emotional, legal and livelihood support to hundreds of women like Mynah. And We cannot empower women without your help.
