A great eye for business
Ritu wields a eyeshadow brush with such skill that everyone in her local area trusts her to do their make-up. Having been trained through TEAR’s partner Saahasee’s vocational program, Ritu started her beauty therapy business with a mobile cart, visiting clients in the suburb adjoining the slum where she lives.
The business grew, and now Ritu has a shopfront as well as mobile work – both attracting a wide range of clients. Choosing to give back to the program, Ritu is now teaching the next generation of Saahasee’s students, acting as a role model for women’s business in the slum.
At TEAR, we believe that God has created everyone in his image. Yet many people around the globe don’t have the opportunity for their true beauty, gifts and skills to shine. They’re held back by poverty, marginalisation and injustice.
