Saumu Ramadhan

learned independence

Saumu was an orphan with one child, unemployed, with no skills and struggling with life, solely depending on her grandmother who is a traditional medicine woman.

At the time of her son’s birth, she had only one piece of tattered cloth which she used as a diaper and had to refold the same to get drier sections for wrapping the baby before it became too wet for continued use.

Currently Saumu is earning her living through the skills received, able to educate her son.

Dama Thoya

self reliance accomplished

Dama Thoya is now a self-reliant single mom who facilitates transformation in her community. She was illiterate, had no business skills, had medical complications and was under threats of losing her piece of land which she paid for partly and was unable to raise the balance to complete the payment.

Caris has empowered her with literacy skills and she is able to interpret her group reports. She started and leads three other groups on her own with coaching from the Caris staff.
