ENACTUS SATYAWATI: PROJECT AASHRAY
“No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark.”
A few Hindu families from undivided India, who were earlier living in Pakistan, began to settle at Majnu ka Tila in 2011.Enactus Satyawati under Project Aashray focuses on empowering refugee families living in Majnu Ka Tila, by training them in making shoes, and making them entrepreneurs. Enactus Satyawati also intends to focus on their holistic development and help them overcome their difficulties. Since the community does not have a fixed source of employment, we plan to make them entrepreneurs by helping them establish their own business. The product we have chosen is hand-stitched footwear, the raw materials for which will be provided to them by Enactus Satyawati.
Apart from making them financially stable, we also intend to talk to local government bodies to help solve the problem of sanitation and cleanliness, and help the children with their education. Our members go at least once a week to teach the kids and educate them. We also wish to draw attention towards this neglected community and spread awareness about how and why they need to be accepted in our society, in our country.
Enactus Satyawati believes that seeking asylum is a human right. Refugees are a part of humanity and we cannot leave them behind.
