Nibha Kumari is from West Champaran, Bihar. She lives in a family of 5 in a very cheerful and wholesome environment. Her family constitutes of her parents, a younger brother and an older sister. Their family income lies below the BPL (Below Poverty Line). Her father works as a farmer and her mother is a housewife who looks after the family and household chores. Her younger brother is undergoing his education for BA and her elder sister Goldy, has completed her education and is in search of a job to support her family.
Nibha has had a daunting life and has faced all the challenges straight up. She has always wanted to make her parents proud and believes in standing out from the crowd in order to make something worthwhile of your life. She is very hardworking and like to work for the cause without being greedy for results as her belief is that results will automatically find you if you work hard enough.
Digital Sarthak has proved to be a great boon in her life as it has helped her to learn so much and make a name for herself amongst the women of her village. She encourages all these women to become self-dependent and learn about the digital tools so that they can contribute towards making their lives easier and better. Also, she can help these women run small businesses if not already, in the online medium to increase their sales and get a better outreach.
The program has been of a great deal of help to her as she had been planning on buying a smartphone for herself but was waiting till she got employed. DEF helped her out here and got her started with her own work. Through the Digital Sarthak’s experience, she also got a job in Bihar Women Police Battalion.
As of now, Nibha Kumari has started working in her latest job at the Battalion after she trained nearly 100 women of her village and passed on her wisdom to them which helped her
to get where she is. She has left her previous responsibilities in the capable hands of her elder sister Goldy.
She has noticed changes around her such as the girls are now becoming more independent and ambitious with what they can do with their lives since they finally have the resources and guidance. She is extremely thankful to the Digital Sarthak programme as this opportunity has greatly helped her out in elevating her cause and stand on her own feet and has also done the same for many other women as well.
