HELPING WIDOWS: Single Women’s Empowerment, Hyderabad, Telengana

Update : This project is over. Funding Received.


  1. Ever since her husband passed away in an accident last year, Mamatha has nurtured a dream that saw her through those depressing days- to be self-reliant. The MSI Charity located her and told us of her dream. We have supported her and sent her Rs 5000/- in order to buy a cart which is the first step towards fulfilling her dream. COVID has put her dream on hold- but she is cheerful and hopeful that she will overcome!

  2. The Untouchables has confirmed Punyavathy's ability to sew and provided her with an electric sewing machine costing Rs 8000/-. We await news on her new venture as she waits out COVID lockdown.
