About Freeset

Some things that were new to me

There are about 200 women working here, making bags, tshirts, screen printing abd products from old saris  I was impressed at the work done to help the women, mediical services, councellng, child care, medical insurance, .

Leavingthe

streetsis not just getting a job but a long journey.

We have takenan early train north to seenew businesses being started. Why here you ask. Itsbecausewomen and children are being sold from this area to work in the sex industry in Kolkata

The train ride was all flat through farmland and small towns. Less populated than Bangladesh but still lots of people.

Nearly time to gooff on our nextadventure this time in a van
