Blogpost from February 2024

Namaste from Dehradun, India, and welcome to our very first blog post!

We are thrilled to launch this platform to keep you updated on NAYA's activities. Stay tuned every month for exciting updates and insights into our journey! 🚀

Recently, NAYA joyously celebrated its one-year anniversary in India. The day was marked with jubilant festivities, complete with cake, birthday hats, and a nostalgic reflection on the incredible year that has passed.

The anniversary celebration was not just about marking a milestone but also about appreciating the journey. It's been a year of growth, challenges, and countless memorable moments. We've overcome obstacles together, learned valuable lessons, and forged strong bonds within the NAYA family.

Our commitment to making a positive impact in the community has been unwavering. From providing the opportunity of work to educational initiatives within technology and English. Our aim is to uplift and empower and we believe in the power of collective efforts to create meaningful change.

As we welcome the new year with open arms, one of our women wants to share some thoughts with our readers.

"Before finding a home at NAYA, my fellow team members and I had a different chapter in our lives, one filled with challenges and resilience. Our journey from the roles we held before to becoming an integral part of NAYA has been a powerful transformation. In our previous jobs, we dedicated our time to the homes of others. Our responsibilities ranged from cleaning to washing utensils and assisting with various household chores. Balancing tasks across 4-5 houses meant making multiple visits to each, ensuring every aspect was taken care of. The demanding nature of our work often led to moments of stress, and occasionally, we found ourselves facing scolding for various reasons.

Our typical workday started with 4-5 hours in the morning, followed by returning home to manage our own households, including cooking, cleaning, and washing dishes. Despite the demanding schedule, we would then head out again to clean more homes. During times when household work was not enough, we found alternative ways to sustain our families. Sometimes we have to take on the tiering and challenging task of collecting garbage from various streets.

Financially, our previous jobs also posed significant challenges. Earning very less, we had to navigate budgeting complexities, ensuring every rupee was carefully utilized to make ends meet.

Joining NAYA has been like finding a new family and a chance to learn and grow. It's not just a job; it's about being part of something bigger and positive in our community. At NAYA, we get to learn and improve ourselves every day. The office is a safe place where we can focus on our work and personal development without any worries. We never even thought we would learn to use a computer, let alone work with technology. NAYA has given us the chance to adapt and embrace new skills, opening doors we never imagined.

What's even more comforting is that we know our families are taken care of. This support allows us to concentrate on our work, knowing that our loved ones are okay. And beyond this, being part of NAYA means contributing to projects that make our community better. The friendship and support in our NAYA family make our journey even more special.”

As we move forward together, stay tuned for more stories of how NAYA is making a difference. We're not just building a startup; we're creating a family where everyone is cared for and has the chance to do grow. 🌟
