Batulben from Sanjay Nagar Basti in Rajasthan had attended school until the 8th grade. To support her family financially, Batulben had joined SEWA for training in Lac craft and stitching, and soon became a trainer for these skills. She was also determined to complete her education and with the support of her family, was pursuing her 10th grade studies from an open school.
Due to the Covid19 lockdown, Batulben’s school shut down. She realised that some families around her were unable to access ration, and she, along with her husband, collected ration from the local authorities, prepared and distributed food to 75 people in need. These included families with 6 kids and those that hadn’t eaten for 3 days straight.
