Meager

As a student social worker, I worked in the slums of Mumbai in the 90s. I worked with women and children who left their homes early in the morning to pick up and sort trash to make meager earnings. In the evening, they would return with a small amount of rice and occasionally, some lentils. A watery broth was served as dinner. When we sat down to talk about their lives, the women and children would share how hard and how long they needed to work to make few rupees…meagre earnings that helped them stay alive. I will always remember, small change can make a big change…
