While she stayed on in her village with her children, her husband migrated out to earn a living. Being a daily wager she had to face many hardships, but then a big change came in her life when CA partner ANHAD opened a vocational training centre in her village in 2009. Ever since Najbun joined the centre she does not have to work in the sun anymore and thanks to Dhaani (a project of CA and ANHAD), she can take care of her family and spare some time for the welfare of her village as well. It will not be a surprise if she becomes the head of her village sometime in the future.
Najbun lives in a small village called Kajha Kothi in Bihar’s Purnia district. Being a mother of nine children she found it hard to make both ends meet.
