Meet the Artisan

Laxmi's Story of Hope Laxmi is a resilient and determined woman, in spite of being married off at nineteen years old. Laxmi's parents arranged her marriage to a stranger who was nearly a decade older than her. Throughout their seven-year marriage, Laxmi was often tortured by her husband. During an argument about his dissatisfaction with the dowry money her parents paid him to marry Laxmi, Laxmi was set on fire. She survived, but her husband was fatally injured when he tried to save her. As a widowed single mother with deep scars and physical limitations, Laxmi learned to stitch in this workshop and now supports her three children and mother in a home she built with the income she's earned as an Artisan.
