          Despair was no stranger to Madhavi Amma, a poor widow in a remote village in Wayanad, whose spinal injury in an accident pushed her to the brink of destitution- until help came in the form of Kudumbashree, who took her plight to the Grama Sabha and made her part of the Mullankolli Panchayat’s Ashraya Project for destitute rehabilitation. Through Kudumbashree’s involvement, Madhavi Amma now has a new home, continuing medical support and small plot of rubber to cultivate. Today, visitors to her home will find on the wall- alongside pictures of gods and goddesses- a photograph of Thankamani, the chairperson of the CDS of Mullankolli who helped her find hope for a future with dignity.
