Very touching. Brought back memories of growing up in Guyana. Some of our mothers were taken out of school, taught to sew, cook, daub bottom house and trained to become a house wife to look after their husbands and in laws. They worked very hard in the cane fields, garden and rice fields and to help us get a better education.
Just finished watching all the Episodes on Netflix.
The school existed in South India. In 2008 financial crisis, the main guy lost everything and coud not finance the school anymore. It was going to close. Is it still teaching poor students?
Glad to hear a second school is in the making!
I've watched the documentary on Netflix. All of the girls have done extremely well having completed college or law school, and well-settled in their individual careers.
Praying that the younger of the girls accomplish her goal of becoming a veterinarian. I've donated to this cause as I believe education is the key out of poverty.
We assisted to publish a handicraft catalog to sell Mayan crafts in Europe, at a place called Ovantic in Chiapas, Mexico. Four isolated women groups came together to form a co-op called Women of Dignity. Making and selling traditional crafts was their likelihood. Daughters of Destiny has similar motivation, for people to help themselves.
