Bilkis is the elder sister of a sponsored child called Kamrul Hasn, who is now 21. When they were evicted from their slum dwelling, the Family Rehabilitation Project awarded her US$308 (£250) to set up her own tailoring business in the community and also provided her with appropriate training. Whereas before she was just getting by on the small sums she earned as a private tutor, today she makes a profit of US$26 (£21) per month, which helps her family pay the rent for their new accommodation in another urban area of Dhaka. The project has not only provided material assistance, it has also given her a newfound independence as the decision maker in the family.
