Stories and 

Testimonial

I have heard and seen around the world, but I want to end with the story of just one Kanpur-based young girl, Kusum Singh, who was married at the age of 13 to an abusive illiterate husband,” said Hillary, “At the age of 15, she realised she had no future. She knew if she were to have any hope at all, she had to stand up for herself.”

When selections for community health workers were held, she stood for selection and she won. But to work in the village, she had to take a courageous step, to walk out of her house. She said the biggest challenge in her health care work was to get other women out of their homes and become more active in the life of their community. First two joined, then four, and before your eyes we became a group, she explains. Now she says she has the capacity to mobilise 250 women to walk towards a healthier life.

Hillary also praised the role of non-government organisations in primary health care and family planning services.
