We Help Ourselves
(English, VCD, 28mins)
We Help Ourselves is the story of the migrants from Beed and Ahmednagar region were bitter about migrating. Sampada has touched the lives of 2100 women. Even though, men made disparaging remarks, women resolved to prove themselves. They stepped out in the night, if need be to conduct their business meetings. They got drinking water in the village of Parchundi. Women have started taking their own decisions and solving their own problems. With their individual development, they have also started thinking of the village development also. Their journey has begun on the path of progress.
