Sancha Maya with her latest brood of chickens.


"I feel I can do things for myself, my children and community."

Sancha Maya

We're sure you remember Sancha Maya. She was at her wit's end when we met her in last year's film. Today, Sancha Maya has a different outlook on life.

Because you had dinner with us last year, hundreds of families in Nepal, like Sancha Maya and her children, have a nutritious meal every night and are well on their way to becoming free from poverty.

“I feel I can do things for myself, my children, and my community”, says Sancha, now Chairperson of her local women's group and proud owner of a successful chicken raising business that provides enough income to send her children to school and purchase food to supplement what she raises in her new vegetable garden.

Today, Sancha Maya continues to move people to action by sharing her story and success with others in her community, helping them find ways out of poverty as well.
