Beaming with positivity, Kausar a resident of Eaklaspura village in Gadag District said, “Getting acquainted with DEAL Foundation at the time of the sustainable rural livelihood baseline survey conducted by them was the best thing to happen to me. As a woman with disabilities, I have been struggling to be noticed let alone taken seriously by anyone “.
Kausar who is just aged 19 years has successfully completed her Foundation training in apparel design and tailoring is now working at the DEAL Foundation Apparels & Tailoring unit in Mevundi. She is a quick learner, has a strong work ethic and has shown great courage in the face of adversity. “I’m sure she will succeed in her goal of wanting to become self-reliant and help members of her family” said Shivakumar, Training Coordinator DEAL Foundation.
