Something about this picture which was sent early this morning by the Gabriel Project Mumbai has captivated us…the colors? The look of hope on the women’s faces, perhaps? Or, is it just stunning because it represents one more success for Jacob Sztokman’s dream of helping to alleviate the extreme poverty of Mumbai’s slums? Women’s empowerment groups (those smiling faces) receive micro-credit funding to purchase the ingredients for the meals they prepare daily for the 500 children in the program. These nutritious lunches are the only complete meal the kids may get that day. Now, rather than cook in their individual homes, the women have a central kitchen in which to work and perhaps, even expand their operation allowing for even greater improvement of their own family’s well-being.
Perhaps you’d like to help the Good People Fund purchase some of the utensils the women will need in their food preparation?
