Today, Sham is one of two main artisans within Noonday’s partner workshop.
He oversees the work of the women employed by the factory and also makes weekly trips to the market in order to buy supplies for the group's projects.
As an artisan working with Noonday, Sham has been able to provide for his wife Shabnam and his three daughters, Kajal, Beauty and Sweetie.
He not only earns a fair wage, but he lives rent-free on the property of the jewelry workshop.
Sham's job provides him with peace over his family's current situation, allowing him to focus on their future.
“My dream is for my children to be educated well, unlike I was, and to someday have enough money to own my own factory.”
