"I danced the dance"


On the 11th of January 2011 I went to India with another 12 women. This was a special day as it was also my birthday. The reason for going to India was to see women’s self-help groups in operation and hopefully take the idea back to Scotland and make it work there. We visited many groups and each one was as inspiring as the last. The women openly shared their life stories and I could relate so much to how their lives were similar to many in Glasgow. I could not wait to get home and contact a few women in my area that I knew would benefit so much from being part of a group. This trip was a life changing experience for me. I came home so humble and full of aspiration. I printed a small letter inviting women along to St Paul’s church to hear all about my trip to India.
