Help Saavi & 30 More

Escape from Pakistan and arrival in Bharat 

Leaving behind their tortuous life in Karachi, Pakistan, Saavi and her husband Rajendra arrived in Bharat in 2008 as a young couple with hopes of finding religious freedom and a new life where they could build a future for themselves and their children. Saavi’s elder sister had been kidnapped, forcibly converted, and married off to a Muslim man in Pakistan. By leaving Pakistan and coming to Bharat, Saavi and Rajendra hoped to rebuild their lives in a nation where they would not be treated as second grade citizens. 

Though they had little, they worked hard and started to build a life and a family. However, fate had other plans and before their plans could materialize, Saavi’s husband succumbed to Covid-19 leaving her and their children broke and vulnerable. They had three children Suhani, Ansh and Arjun who are aged 12,9 and 7 years, respectively. 

Having nothing to fall back on, Saavi decided to go back to Pakistan where her family still lives even though she felt deeply scared for the safety of her eldest daughter. 


Krishna Wills Otherwise and a Change of Plans 

They say in Bharat that nothing in the universe happens without Krishna’s will and so it happened with Saavi. Even as she readied to return to the country that is a veritable hell hole for Hindus, help arrived in the form of a team of selfless volunteers from #HinduEcosystem led by Avinash and supported by Sachin, Anantha, Arvind, Shankar, Nita, Shruti, Kanwal and Hariom. They not only persuaded Saavi to stay back but also reignited her hopes for running her own sewing business and desire for a safe life and education for her children in Bharat by sponsoring two high quality sewing machines for her. 


Path Ahead 

Though her spirit is rekindled, the path ahead for Saavi and her children is full of uncertainty. To run the business sustainably, she needs another 6 sewing machines and supplies that will cost around 2.5 lakh rupees. Saavi will also need working capital of INR 30,000 per month for the next year that includes salary payment to workers she will hire and for payment of operating expenses such as electricity bills, packaging, travel etc.  


What is Saavi’s business model? 

Saavi plans to hire and train women from her locality to sew garments and supply them to sellers. Though not literate, she is very hands on and full of determination. The clothes she has designed showcase her talent. We the volunteers also plan to support her in obtaining orders and marketing of her garments by setting up business pages on various social media channels. 



What help is needed from you? (Section Updated) 

I am delighted to announce that we have now received backing from Hindu Ecosystem and IIP Foundation. We are now increasing the goal of this campaign to INR 11,00,000. The fund will be used to is to generate INR 11,00,000 of capital (2.5 lakh for purchase of sewing machines and 8.5 lakh as working capital) for Saavi and another 30 Pakistani Hindu women who will work to establish a business owned and run by them and work to strengthen PM Modiji’s goal of #Atmanirbhar Bharat. Your small contributions will be of immense help to Savi and her team in helping her and others like her to thrive in Bharat.
