  • Project trip 2014: Seven years CEWAS - continuous work on grassroots level shows its impact

    When Sathya came to CEWAS, she was nine months pregnant and desperate. She was unmarried, the child's father refused to marry her. Unmarried and pregnant she was a disgrace to her family and was sent away. In CEWAS she delivered the child and later on started working for CEWAS. With the help of CEWAS she managed to reunite with her family. She now lives as a single parent back in her village - a very unusual situation, which shows that change is possible.
