Rose Circles has been working for the past ten years in tandem with several Indian NGOs which are dedicated to the eradication of poverty in its many forms. We have provided the funds ourselves to keep this income generation work going in the rural areas of Maharashtra. We cannot reach all the women who could be helped without expanding our base. We are currently in the process of forming our Own Trust which is being set up to specifically help the women to become economically stable.
We are asking you to help by donating money to help these women and children to have a better life. We do not give them money, but we teach them skills to make products which we can market for them in the west so the circle expands. We are interested in giving work to more and more women and to increase the opportunities for women to earn in other states of India. Once we have expanded our work and increased our market, we will be able to sustain our project through the earnings we generate.
We have added a donation button at the bottom of this page which offers a simple method to safely transfer money. We make sure the women get the help they need to help themselves. You have the option of sponsoring one woman for any length of time you choose. Once you decide to sponsor a woman, you can go to the contact us page and fill out the sponsor form, and e-mail it to Anne. We will register you as a sponsor, and send a photo with the name of the woman you have sponsored. BELOW IS AN OUTLINE OF COSTS PER WOMAN FOR WAGES:
- To give work to one woman for one month, would require a donation of $90
- To give work to one woman for six months would require a donation of $540
- To give work to one woman for one year would require a donation of $1080
But of course any donation, large or small, would be beneficial and most appreciated!
THE PROFIT FROM THE SALE OF THE PRODUCTS THESE WOMEN MAKE CAN CONTINUE TO GIVE MORE WOMEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK AND IMPROVE THEIR LIVES.
