Presenting of cheques
Wow – thank you! Up to September 2020 a total of 5000 Euros has been raised for this project, which I was able to transfer to our partner organisation, the Maharshi Goshala Charitable Trust. A week after that, on 26 September, each of the 15 women was presented with a cheque for 25,000 rupees.
Since these women have learned to be careful with money, we were sure that they would use it wisely, and therefore no conditions were attached to the payment. At first the women couldn’t believe that there wasn’t a catch somewhere. Puzzled, they asked why people from a foreign country would give them a substantial sum of money “just like that” without wanting anything in return. I would like to pass on their heartfelt thanks to everyone who has made this project possible.
