Meet Anjana - since the start of the pandemic, she has recruited and trained 9 other women to join our Masks of HOPE program! Together, she and her team have prepared 15,000 double layered masks, and she alone has produced 3,600 masks. With the skills and money earned through Masks of HOPE, she has bought her a new sewing machine and plans to start her own business when the pandemic is over.

Leading up to Giving Tuesday on December 1st, we invite you to give back to women like Anjana, whose strength & perseverance has been an inspiration to us all, by donating to the Desai Foundation’s Giving Back to Women campaign.

Just for this week, all donations will be DOUBLED by @Soothi, guaranteeing that we can provide additional safe & sustainable livelihood opportunities to even more women like Anjana. Donate here at bit.ly/giveback2women now!
