In Bangladesh, a widow, or any single woman for that matter, is considered a liability - and there are many of them. Heart House gives women a chance. Heart House provides education and skills-training at the Malumghat center by Memorial Christian Hospital, and at area churches/community centers. The women do stunningly detailed embroidery, sewing, and doll-making.
Nowadays countrywide electric shortages cause people to flock into Heart House’s showroom looking for hand-fans; besides being practical the fans are lovely. Heart House projects bring ladies an income, and these unique projects both cool and beautify the houses of all who buy.
