Project story
01 Jan 2018

“I have been working as a mason for more than 10 years. I learned it from my husband who learned the craft from his father. In 10 years I have built more than 2,000 biogas domes. If I do not build a dome the right way, the gas does not go out. It is very special for a woman to build properly. I used to earn about 500 rupees per dome, but now I earn the same as my husband, which is 1,000 rupees. Besides building domes “, I also cook twice a day and in the evening I do the laundry and clean my house. It’s hard work, but I like it and my status as a woman has grown enormously.”
