Sweet Words from the Happy Faces Countrywide

I dreamed to become a service holder to make my family happy. But, my parents didn’t have any ability to pay my educational expenses. I started working as a house made from my very childhood. One fine morning Ambala Foundation and the Executive Director Mr. Arif Sikder came in my life as a light of hope. I started studying and I am sure I shall become a service holder in future. My Family will be happy.

I am the only earning member of our family. My husband lost his working ability after a tragic accident. I, my husband and our 3 children started struggling to survive. There was no hope in front of us. Ambala Foundation was the first organization who inspired me to start small business locally. I started poultry raring and beef fattening taking training and microcredit from them. My 03 kids are school going now.

My younger son was a child labor. He started work in a factory which was very dangerous. We were very scared about his safety. But, we didn’t have any way without this working. He helped me to buy foods for my 7 members’ family. Ambala Foundation rescued him from the hazarded place and helped us a lot. He is school going now and we are trying to uplift our lives.

The fisher folk community of Gazaria was deprived and marginalized due to the lack of their accessibility to the natural resources like open water fisheries. We were organized to claim our rights. We didn’t know the laws properly. Ambala Foundation, Mr. Arif Sikder and Mr. S M Saifur Rahman changed our lives through a Human Rights Program. We are organized and started getting our rights.

Poverty was a part of our lives. We could not afford our everyday foods and cloths. Our 07 members’ family had no radio, cell phone, electricity, ceiling fan, television etc. Now, in 2019 we have all of these, radio, cell phones, electricity, television, fans and even refrigerator. All these things have been happened because of Ambala Foundation, their Microcredit and Social Business Program.

The Social Venture Ambala IT of Ambala Foundation has changed the working process of our office significantly. Our staffs are now enough encouraged and they can work more with the useful tools like Micofin 365, NABA ERP and Check Print. We do not know how to thank Ambala IT and the young team of Mr. Arif Sikder. We are really grateful to their social business programs.

Once upon a time we could not raise our voice to the leaders and government. We could not demand our needs to the authority. Vested interest groups took the entire government budget for the development of their locality. The Community Media of Ambala Foundation, Radio Birkampur 99.2 FM has changed this situation. We can raise our voice now and are also taken care of by the authority.
