Saroj is leader of a group of village women in GEN’s handicraft project in the village of Shekhpur in Rajasthan.  She and 8 other seamstresses make attractive quilted bags to make some independent income.  This they use to educate their children, deal with family health problems, and meet other family needs.  It has also raised their status in the family and the community.  Saroj has been able to do this because her group and at least 10 other groups of women have been supported by a project that GEN funds in a remote rural part of Rajasthan.
