“I wanted to be a talented girl who takes decisions for herself. I am from minority where girls get very less facilities to do things on their own. We were not allowed to go out from home to anywhere else easily. But, these issues are gone now after joining this organisation. One of the causes of HHT is to uplift women and help them in confidence building. We are having our annual day in which its compulsory for all champions to participate in its cultural programmes. This is a wonderful opportunity for us as most of us did not sing or dance before this upcoming
event anywhere. Apart from this, I enjoy conducting the sessions of reading, writing, storytelling, art and craft etc for the children of our partner schools.”
