Apsaroon tells that she had joined the Asani project of Desai Foundation a year ago, when she was in dire need of a job, she got the job, took training and started working in the production center packing pads. Through this project, there has been a lot of change in her life as well as in the thinking of her family members, she says that she was not allowed to leave the house, even at home she had to remain veiled.

When I told my family about my work and explained the condition of women in the society, my mother gave me courage to do something good by joining this project to change the society.
