Others USA—Rozina's Story

Reflections of Bangladesh: New life comes when our stories connect us around the world.


My name is Rozina. I have been working with the Others program of The Salvation Army for 10 years in my native Bangladesh. I have two children. My husband does not have daily work so the money I earn helps to cover the education expenses of our children. I earn 4-5,000 Taka per month.

I make floor mats, shoe bags, hearts and coasters.  I was able to purchase a cow with the money I earned from Others. That cow had 3 calves and I sold 1 for 30,000 Taka and I made a better cow shed. 

Because of Others I now have a better position in my family. I am respected and am making a contribution for our future.
