WSDO Artisan Story
Bhagawati has been a member of WSDO since 1998. She was born in the village of Purkot, and is the third of 5 children. During her childhood, she faced many struggles as her parents were poor. She started working in the fields at age 12 to help pay for her own schooling and completed her tenth school year.
At first, Bhagawati was trained in weaving and sewing, and now has taken on more duties. For the past 7 years she has been helping manage the quality department which she now leads. It has been 21 years that she has been employed by WSDO.
Bhagawati has a son and a daughter. Having children motivated her to provide them with good lives. And since her husband could not support them enough, she took on all the responsibilities. Today her daughter is finishing her higher secondary level thanks to her mother’s support and a scholarship from WSDO.
She lives with her children and husband in a house located in a lower income housing community in Pokhara. She walks just 25 minutes to go to work in the head office.
