Sharanamma, a poor Devadasi (Temple
Prostitution: A Religious cultural evil) hails from Utakanoor
village of Raichur District. They are totally eight members in the
house live as joint family. She looks after the family as a daily
wage worker with meager income. The eldest brother is married and
his family too stays in the same house. It is a social stigma to
live as a daughter of Devadasi. Her Younger daughter (Yellamma) is
studying in the primary high school at Utakanoor. The family was
living in a thatched house in 3 cents of land owned by them for so
many years. A small stable and beautiful house was a long cherished
dream for this family but they were unable to save money for this
purpose as they struggled to meet the day to day expenses and
educate their younger daughter yellamma.
Ensemble Agissons ‘together act’ selected this family for the
project “HOUSING FOR THE POOR” which enabled them to realize their
dream. Mr. Daniel the President of Ensemble agissons adopted her
daughter yellamma in sponsorship programme. His timely visits to
this family build close relationship and help her daughter in her
education.”WE ARE EXTREMLY HAPPY TO HAVE A HOUSE OF OUR OWN” said
Sharanamma teary eyed. Words fail to thank the beloved Father, Mr.
Daniel Helbert President who has contributed this house for us. VCT
Pothnal is grateful to Ensemble Agissons donors for their
partnership in this project.
