Since the day that WomenServe founder, Nioma Sadler, sat at the kitchen tables of Rajasthani women in the Thar Desert, she has been committed to telling the compelling stories of these heroic women and their daughters.
Here are just a few we would like to share with you…
The seed of WomenServe was planted in the heart of a young girl that was denied a formal education by her esoteric parents. But this perceived hardship would open up a world of imagination, big dreams, and bold visions as Nioma Sadler, founder of WomenServe, found herself through the stories of inspiring women.
When She Catches Rain
WomenServe collaborated with taanka (water catchment tank) recipients to produce this film and educate on the benefits of improved water security.
When families and communities have access to water, their quality of life improves. Women can provide for their families and girls can attend school. That’s why water security is key to social, economic and educational opportunity in this region.
With your help, we can make every raindrop count by catching water for these women and girls.
Gavra no longer has to wake up at 3 am to make the six-mile walk to collect water at the village naadi in the debilitating heat. Hear her heartfelt story of struggle and tears that turned into joy and gratitude with something as simple as water.
From being married as a teenager to losing both parents, her husband, and a son, Kamala is a beacon of strength and hope. Learn how a taanka made her life less challenging and how her gratitude spills over into the village.
When She Has a Bike
To get to school, girls had to walk several miles in the hot Thar Desert to get to school. WomenServe partnered with The Revive Project and provided 582 bike scholarships to young girls.
