Neetu Chandila

Name: Neetu Chandila

Age: 28

She is married and has 2 sons – ages 7 & 5. She lives in the village of Fatepuhr Chandila. Neither she nor her husband work. Her husband has computer training, but needs 2 more credits of school to get a job in that field. She is not allowed to leave the home for work; but could sew in home for GPPD. Their family owes a lot of money in debts and they live together in the home all together. Neetu went to school until 10th grade. She has a large number of talents and abilities that include stitching, crocheting, and spa/parlor work. 

 

It is often said, “If you feed a man a fish, you can feed him for a day, but if you teach a man how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”  

We look for avenues to equip women and men in poverty with the opportunity to start a business of their own that can help them provide fortheir basic needs of food, shelter, and education for their families for a lifetime. 

Their businesses also invest into large projects we are doing in their communities and throughout the world. 

In 2012 we launched our first sewing microbusiness training, teaching 21 impoverished women how to start a sewing business of their own. Through donations from Proceeds for Poverty and other one-time gifts, we buy a sewing machine and iron for each trainee. 

We train them in simple business principles and sewing skills that will help them begin a seamstress business in their communities and villages. 

We also train them to make products for GPPD that we will give away for a donation.  Once they earn a portion of the cost of their machines by making a few products for us, we then pay them for each additional product they make. 

The proceeds we receive from any donations for the products go toward a larger project to help people in poor communities throughout the world,  a fee for labor, shipping the product (if neccesary) and the cost of the materials.
