Women at Hunar Ghar: Challenging multiple stereotypes

By | Administration | One Comment
The team at Hunar Ghar consists of people who not only work in extremely challenging situations, but also act as inspiring changemakers working towards creating a lasting transformation in a remote rural area. These changemakers, not least the women who teach at Hunar Ghar, who carry out our health and community work, and who manage administration matters, are not only breaking gender stereotypes but also playing a pivotal role in dispelling the myths around adivasi communities that leads to untold discrimination and marginalisation.

It has been almost 8 months since Imrana, our Administrative Manager joined the team. She has been a key member of our team offering help and support to the health, education and construction teams, looking after administration of offices and taking care of interns, guests and team members. In this blog she talks about her work and her experiences at Hunar Ghar.

The mobile clinic 

This Sunday was the first mobile clinic held in Bakhel after our recent health survey. 103 patients were seen with 97 getting treatment and 14 being referred for further TB and cataract tests. From speaking to Neha it seems like it was pretty great day. 103 people is a good turn our, and several people in the village went above and beyond to ensure people knew about it and came along.
