Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
- Esther (Deepam Project)
My name is Esther, I am 36 years old, I am married, and I have one son and one daughter. I born and brought up Christian background.
My husband working as the watchman, but due to his mental problem he cannot work more than 3 months or 5 months in one place. Right now he cannot able to go and work.
By Gods grace, I am trying to send my kids every day to a government school.
Story of Esther:
When I was single, I don’t have a father and mother, even my marriage was done by myself. It was a really hard time, but by faith not asking many questions to God, I accepted my life and I do have a faith one day my life will change, during this transit time of my life, every night I sleep with tears and pain. As my children growing, as a mother I am not able to provide their very basic needs, even I am not able to provide 3-time meals, and my husband, he brings very less money, which I use for his medications, and the house always will be leakage when the rain comes, and when the sun comes it hits directly.
As a woman and low cast background, some people were trying to abuse me physically. But God helped me each and every time. I also move on different and different labor works.
A year ago I come to know there is a project called DEEPAM (light), the first time when I heard I don’t have any ideas, but while I was walking through the street (Deepam place) I saw many women’s, in that group I know most of them, I stopped myself and inquired about what is happening here.
When they started to share about the Deepam project, I got happy. And also the trainer is a mature, elderly women. I felt more comfortable. I was willing to enroll in the training through deepam. While I was talking with the people, I got double happy, they said it is free of cost, which made me happier.
From day one onward I was very interested and excited, every single course I carefully listened and practiced. After finishing the course, now I can be able to be stitching women’s cloth, all types of bags, bible covers.
After finished my courses I got my certificated, and right now I am working with Deepam, as Deepam paying a small amount of honorarium, though it is not much big but I am happy.
I want to be with Deepam and same time One day I want to make a big tailoring shop, where people can come and work and earn sufficiently.
Kindly pray for me and good health

Pray for one day we will build a house so that we will show how great is our God.
Pray for my family's spiritual growth.
