One Billion Rising: Rehabilitation of young girls in Uttar Pradesh | IMPACT

February 16; Khushinagar, UP

Suman, along with her three sisters, had to leave her house following the financial constraints after her mother’s demise. “I collected the body and cremated her,” Suman, who is in her teens, told Community Correspondent Madhuri Chauhan. Since their father had already passed away, the four sisters went on to live with neighbours. According to the Indira Awas Yojana, Suman’s family was supposed to get a house to live in, but the bureaucratic processes were making it hard. CC Madhuri, with the help of women in the community, followed the matter relentlessly with Block-level authorities. Finally, the administration came into action and the brick-layered house is being built for the sisters. Despite all the unfortunate happenings in their young lives, CC Madhuri has been able to restore a sense of hope — in concrete form of the house. “It was possible because of the efforts of women in my community and the video you made on the problems I was facing,” says Suman.
