opportunities for mothers like Ranjita. This Christmas Christian Aid tells the stories of women around the world who are living in the toughest circumstances due to poverty and prejudice. Ranjita lives in Rajasthan, India. She was forced into manual scavenging work at just nine years old. Ranjita earned just a few rupees and a piece of stale bread in return for hours of degrading work cleaning human excrement by hand: ‘They treated us worse than animals’ she recalled. Thanks to the work of our partner ARUN, Ranjita now uses her God-given gifts to support herself and her family with her own business. Meet Ranjita in this short film.
