Yerwada near Pune, Maharashtra

I was lucky to visit different strong women in Yerwada, a slum in Pune.

They told me the hard stories of their life: victims of violence, HIV+, widows, very poor and the house they rent takes almost all their monney but doesn't protect them from the monsoon rains that were to come... And nevertheless they all look so colourful, all have also a smile in their heart and on their face and I think "yes, we have so much to learn form these courageous, beautiful women".
