A very happy Eid 2013 or Eid Mubarak!

Today Eid, an important holy festival, is celebrated by Islam followers in India, Pakistan and other countries. It marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting in the ninth month of the Islamic year, and the start of a new moon. It is followed by celebrations of feasting and rejoicing. Muslims celebrate this festival by greeting each other, wishing each other good blessings, wearing new clothes and distributing gifts and sweets among neighbours and friends.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
