Aleya

Dhaka

I am Aleya. I work in Basha’s textile department. I never had a happy family. My parents were divorced in my childhood. I was raised in my step mother’s house. Even after my marriage I did not get a happy family. My husband’s relatives did not behave well with me. My mother in-law’s house is very wealthy but they treated me as their house helper. My husband left me with three children.

 

In this helpless situation I came to CUP. I received the love that I longed for from CUP. I have learned many things from here; literacy, making blankets, tailoring, and more. From there I received a job at Basha. I love my work place. Everyone is very kind here. I have peace in my heart. I did not get respect from my husband. I worked very hard all day long but there was no appreciation.

 

Now I am earning my own living. I feel honoured when I receive my salary. I am thankful to God for my work. I am happy with my salary and I try to save some for my children’s future.
