직업의 성차별을 뚫고 미래를 꿈꾸는 인도의 아니타

2007.05.02
* UNICEF: In India, a young woman follows her heart and breaks barriers Swarming bees are a familiar sight in this rural Indian village of Bochaha. The men here have always kept bees and made honey. Now for the first time a woman calls herself a Beekeeper. SOT: Anita Khushwaha, Beekeeper: "I love animals and insects. But people thought that Beekeeping was a job only men and boys could do. That women couldn’t do it. This was a big concern for me but I decided early on that if I did any business it would be this and nothing else." At just 17 years old, Anita credits her success to the fact that as a young girl she was able to get an education –despite the odds. In the state of Bihar where she lives only one in 6 girls are literate. Born into a family finding it hard to make ends meet, her parents needed her to look after goats instead of going to school. One day she snuck into school and loved it so much she convinced her parents to let her stay. She was able to raise money for school fees by tutoring other students - and save enough money to buy two Queen Bees. Now she has 125 Queen bees and 125 boxes producing enough honey to pay for college. SOT: Anita Khushwaha, Beekeeper: "After studying, because of my education, I want to become a social worker. So I can work for the community and for the people. I have observed in my village there is a lot of poverty. There is no one to look after the poor people." A UNICEF supported project run by the NGO ‘Going to School’ has honoured Anita as a “Girl Star” - an example of courage and success among girls and women in India. For her community, Anita is a role model, her perseverance will continue to inspire families to send their daughters to school. This is Rachel Warden Reporting for UNICEF Television.
