" I want to explore many ways by which I can expand my project. The reason why I am doing this is I saw many women in slum areas near my place who wanted to do something for their family and are very curious and willing to do work but are not allowed to go outside for work. So by this they are able to do something from their home and will gain confidence in their life. And this makes me a bit happy that someone is happy because of me. "
