My name is Haresa. Recently we had a visitor come named Nora Apa (Sister) I had a wonderful time with her. She was sitting beside me while I worked. I got a lot of encouragement from her because she appreciated my work very much. I like to make hair wraps. At first, I was not making them the correct size, but now I can make them very easily. I can even help others make them the right size. I also help others finish their edges of the kantha. I am proud because I can work independently at Basha. I have two daughters. My elder daughter stays at my in laws house with her grandparents. They didn’t allow her to come live with me. My younger daughter stays with me. My dream is to admit her into school by next year, so that she can have a better education for a bright future.
