I'm so inspried by Soma Seal, our peer trainer and jewelry program supervisor, who recently helped launch a new program for survivors in remote Jalpaiguri, India - 14 hours by train from her home in Calcutta. Soma is the mother of two young children, and it requires extensive planning and logistics for her to manage her kids' needs while she is traveling, something I can really relate to as a working mom. Soma is happy to do it because she sees in these new survivor-trainees a tremendous need for some mother-love and counseling. The level of trauma in this new group is unusually high. Many are recently rescued, or have been in uniquely damaging situations - like the girl who spent her entire childhood living on the railway tracks, or the one who was forced into two child marriages before the age of 15, or the girl who was trafficked by relatives who turned her away when she ran away and begged for refuge. Soma is great at working with these girls because she comes from a similar community, speaks multiple languages fluently, and is blessed with an inherent wisdom and compassion: Whenever I am in her presence, I feel nurtured and heard, and it is beautiful to see the way the survivors respond to her. Help Soma and Made By Survivors provide a great future for these survivors, by buying her amazing Tree of Life necklace!
