Success Stories

I thank our sir (at the factory) who introduced me and gave me a chance to quit tobacco. Tobacco is the greater evil and I shall stay away from it all throughout my life. I will also spread the message that people should stop using tobacco.

I have not had tobacco since the last 2 months now. At first, it was very difficult to quit – I was stressed but I strived to give it up. I suffered from mouth ulcers and pain in my gums. All that has settled now, the craving has reduced, I feel more energetic. The good part is my savings have increased, I now save more than Rs. 250/- per month.

The team at Salaam Bombay Foundation has developed an excellent understanding and rapport with our artisans and has worked on the cessation program with compassion and ownership. We have been extremely happy with the results of the project and hope to remain involved to make changes in our workshop and industry.

In the wider scheme of things, we are all interconnected. To care for the welfare of others is the privilege of a few. Caring for the welfare of our colleagues and co-workers is not a duty, it is the responsibility that each of us, as employers, has to fulfill. The SMF’s Worksite Wellness programme gave me the opportunity to realize this wish for my employees – to create a healthier, happier team. In this lies the future of the country and its people.
