Connecting local responses around the world
Here is a brief translation in English-
Sanskruti Desais is project coordinator of Bangla speaking community under the Care India EMPHASIS project in Mumbai on cross-migration and HIV. In this video she elaborates on how after application of community life competence with Bangla speaking migrant women, the ownership on the issue of HIV has risen. She recalls the pre- CLC scenario where the community considered HIV as the Care Project and not theirs. As a result of community ownership, the women migrants are sharing about HIV with their friends and relatives in other communities like Rey Road and thus, transferring their response.
Sanskruti also says that Care was finding it challenging to set up a self help group among the women migrants. But when the Care team facilitated dream building and the women found the solution themselves and now a 12-member SHG has been set up.
