The world is full of wonderful unique stories

I always wonder how people openly share their stories. The world is full of stories but its still wonderful to know that each one is unique. I think communication has that power to reach out and influence. I joined Trishul through a survey and the simple and the most important thing that I got here is lots of friends. Friends that are my family and work is so much fun with them. I think the entire idea of togetherness lies in walking together even if that is slow. We grow each day together and even if we fall we fall together. I see modern friendships with no attachments and commitments. We barely are together except on the social media and photographs that make us popular. Friendship is when you can cry together on a dark night and smile on a beautiful morning.

Struggles will always be our greatest teachers

I think the way our struggles mold us they will always be our great teachers. I come from a small village near Mumbai. I have strived hard for even of the smallest things like catching bus each day to school and cooking for myself. That has certainly made me a great cook but to be honest I feel on my toes and I can see my castle building brick by brick. From the time when I had to drop my Third year to the journey of successfully completing my M.A History degree I have seen my self-growing persistent. I have been in teaching for last 10 years and the only best way I can contribute to people around me is by helping them in all the way I can. I want to be influential and set examples for people that life is too short to settle and crumble. On the other hand, it is too short to achieve the aspiring dreams a man can have thus make the most of this moment and love fullest.

what I want to become in life

When somebody asks me about what I want to become in life I say whatever is destined to be. However maximum people get me wrong it's just that I believe that one fine day you will be at your best place and simultaneously your efforts will land you there. Till then be open about every opportunity and make the most of it. Don't say this is not of my part or my interest. You will always learn something out of everything!

I was always fascinated by the power of education

I was always fascinated by the power of education. Learning something new creates the feeling of self improvement . The only thing that makes my life really happy is the feeling of being educated. I study in Versova Welfare High School and each day i am working hard to learn English because that's the language of the world. Trishul is a second home to me where I learn and grow. I guess the ultimate way of making difference is by doing what you love and sharing that with the world. I don't fear failure in class but i fear the failure of being stopped. So each new day something new has to spark up .

universe loves the believer

The universe loves the believer, the one who is unstoppable, who thinks beyond existence and has faith. I believe that "what we think we are." I came to Mumbai after getting married and had a joint family. Overtime personal issues began to rise and we had to separate out. I love doing creative things and wanted to pursue my passion. One day few people from Trishul came for survey and employing women in empowerment events. I enrolled in their program in hope to indulge myself into certain activities and get exposure. I like to talk and meet new people each day. Here in Trishul, I have made so many friends and it's such a great feeling. I really look forward to my children and want to give them all I couldn't have. The special moment of my life was when I worked for Designer Anita Dongre (out sourced to Trishul NGO as part of Trishul Women Empowerment Program) and my husband recognized my work. Life feels happy and satisfied now.

                  Few of Trishul Projects

                  Trishul Women Empowerment Program

                  At Trishul Women Empowerment Program (TWEP), our aim is to support economically less-privileged women from rural areas and urban slums as well as revive traditional art and handicrafts by training and encouraging budding artisans through our skill development programs. 
                  At TWEP, we conduct free skill development workshops on hand embroidery, painting methods such as Madhubani and Warli, basic stitching, and creating home decors, handcrafted jewelry, bags, hand-painted greeting cards, and so on.

                  Livelihood generation program at TWEP:Sales proceeds of our carefully crafted products ensure a steady source of income for the women involved. As Trishul extends the training and support to more and more women, we hope to better the lives of multitudes of families, as empowering a woman means empowering a family. 

                  At TWEP, we also conduct periodic health check-up; mentoring and counselling sessions, yoga, and similar supportive activities. We are also planning to start a daily nutrition program at TWEP and TLC to tackle urban malnutrition, a much-ignored malady.

                  Trishul Learning Center

                  Our objective at Trishul Learning Centre (TLC) is to help children from economically weaker communities in rural areas and urban slums build a strong educational foundation, develop self-esteem, and assimilate  values, which will help them maximise their potential and become economically independent and responsible citizens.

                  At Trishul, we believe education and life skills development are primary stepping stones for children from less-privileged communities to enter the mainstream economy and lead a better-quality life. 
                  At TLC, we provide free learning facility to children, focusing on Math, Science, and English. We blend our coaching with activity-based learning, project work, field trips, arts, crafts, sports and unstructured play to facilitate holistic development of the children. Expert counselling and mentoring sessions on career and personality development are also conducted by visiting faculty.
