More than just... building confidence
Begum Madina Akhter joined Traidcraft’s project when she and her family were living hand-to-mouth. She could no longer send her two eldest children to school. Since joining the project, her duck flock has grown from 20 to 400. She has learned to put money aside so that in an emergency, like when she lost most of her ducks due to disease, she is able to recover. Now she can pay for education and a nourishing diet for her children.
I am now far more confident about being able to cope with any economic or financial crisis. I hope Traidcraft will continue its support amongst [the] poor community in Bangladesh. I pray for them so that they live as happy as we are.
Just £15 could train a woman like Madina in duck farming techniques, improving productivity, status, and giving people the opportunity to thrive.
