Jasmine works at an 'income generating' component of the Patuakhali Development Project, an initiative set up by a local NGO supported by Terre des Hommes, a Dutch NGO. In the workshop girls embroider, sew and make Christmas cards. Most of the women are the breadwinners in their family. Some of the women are widows, others are divorced. The younger women work to save for a dowry. Jasmine was divorced after being married off by her parents at a young age. She now has to survive on her own, but thanks to the work she gets at the Development Project, she is able to raise her children and send them to school..
