On 17th March 2022, we signed an MOU to support 20 women by donating a total of 5 sheep to each of them individually in the coming future. These women will rear the sheep for wool and also increase the flock, which in turn, will aid an increase in their income from the sale of wool.

Such support is projected to create employability options for the women and link them with markets so that they earn a sustainable income for their household.

SUCCESS STORIES

Much like many small businesses, this mother and her sons were also forced to shut down their provision store. Even though severely affected by the pandemic and suffering major losses, the family did not lose hope.

Seeing many families like them struggling to barely make ends meet, this family decided to start SNR, a small scale unit to manufacture multi-purpose masala right in the middle of the pandemic. This mother and sons duo is an inspiration for us all to overcome these dark times and build the best for us with what we have.

With your support, Mukul Madhav Foundation through its Diwali campaign, is proud to support SNR by raising Rs 5,79,500 for the SHG.

Thank you for being kind enough to

Ariharan Guruswamy, a resident of Madurai city, Tamil Nadu and an engineer by profession, soon realized that his heart was in making a difference and that's when he set up a Self Help Group called Sigura Oil.

The SHG worked closely on establishing better supply chains and marketing linkages among farmers involved in sesame oil production. The forward moving enterprise suddenly caught itself in a bottleneck when the lockdown was announced. The painstaking efforts taken to set up their businesses were close to falling apart.

However, your contribution ensured that the first rays of sun hit Akshay and his SHG's many small scale farmers.

More so because this is that time of the year when they get to show the world what they are capable of.

This Diwali, your support came as the glimmering ray of hope for them. It enables us to include diyas made by them in the grocery kits being distributed to families in need. Because of you this year too, Diyas made by them will light up thousands of homes

At a young age of only 20, Payal's life turned upside down as her biggest support system, her father lost the battle against cancer. At an age when we all aim to dream big with the help and support of our families, Payal was left alone to figure out her way in the world. Today, at 26, Payal has risen above her loss and struggles and become a changemaker in the truest sense. She has provided employment to the women of her village by setting up a low cost Sanitary Pad making unit. This has made the women of Rangiatikra financially independent.

With the lockdown, travel restrictions and lack for proper resources, years of her efforts and hardwork was at stake. But, because of people like you, she got an opportunity to not only keep her business afloat but also ensure that sanitary napkins reached women in need through the Mukul Madhav Foundation's Diwali campaign.

The countrywide lockdown rendered people struggling to get access to the bare necessities whereas the small and local business owners faced their own struggles.

We aim to bridge this gap of necessities of people and struggles of local businesses, by procuring salt from Kasthuri salt, a small manufacturer of rock salt, in the southern part of India and distributing it across the country.

What happens when 25 women and children from Gujarat come together to help each other lead a better life? They overcome all challenges together, stand strong in the face of despair and become an inspiration for all of us.

The members of Sharda Social Welfare Trust for specially abled women and children always had a unique determination to pursue their dreams with faith and resilience. Their conviction to lead empowered lives only got stronger with each passing day.

That is why, for Mukul Madhav Foundation's Diwali campaign, there were no second guesses about who to source the 17,800 diyas and 9000 masks from for mass distribution.
