Impact

Being able to move inspired Galamma to change her life.

Galamma worked in the coir industry. An unfortunate accident caused her to lose a leg and she could not work anymore.

Her life got even harder when her father died soon after. She was lost and in pain but refused to give up. She decided that she would do everything she could to help herself and her family.

She pushed herself to walk with the help of crutches. The government hospital that Galamma visited referred her to Uma Educational Trust and Society (UETS). The organization helped her by providing for her treatment. They also gave her an artificial leg.

Galamma began to feel more confident and decided to go back and finish her education. She not only finished her schooling but also graduated from college. She then enrolled for D.Ed in Special Education (Mental Retardation) at UETS.

Today, she is proud to be a Special Educator for intellectually challenged children. She is in awe of her own journey and believes that UETS and its donors made her dreams come true.

Women like Galamma have the courage and determination to win at life. You could help them by donating for mobility aids that keep them going. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.
