'Sometimes the way to reshape the fabric of circumstance is to create a society of tailors'

"We lost all means of livelihood when we lost our land to the moneylender. Being uneducated and never having worked before, I had no idea how to survive with my two children. The tailoring program by the Bansidhar & Ila Panda Foundation in Choudwar came as an opportunity for me. Today I am a skilled worker, earning a living and able to send my children to the local school. There is a board outside my house which says 'Ladies Tailor'. I sometimes watch movies and learnt from 'English Vinglish' that I am an 'Entrepreneur'!"
