Women Empowerment

Kamala Negi poses for a picture at her tyre repair shop. At 47 yrs of age, she is an example of what enterprising and determined women can achieve in an otherwise typical men's world. As a homemaker she brought up her 2 children and when her son had to leave home for a job, she pitched in to help her husband's business. She went on learn the trade and soon mastered the art of running a successful business, normally run by men only. When truck drivers halt to have their tires repaired, they are in for a surprise to see Kamala get to repairing large size tires all by herself.  Recognition from many agencies including one from the Uttarakhand government soon came her way. Kamala is also an active member of women's self help group based at Nathuakhan.
