Arpita Mandal spends her days in distress about how to feed her children two meals a day and ensure that they are able to get an education of their own in her small village in India. Arpita and her family do not have any land to cultivate, living in just a 5’X7’ one single room home with a small veranda. Arpita shares her home with two children, her husband and mother-in-law. After Arpita’s husband was forced to leave the family to make a decent income, she discovered nonprofit Trickle Up and was able to earn her own income and join in a community of local women in similar circumstances.

Trickle Up focuses on the toughest challenges in global poverty alleviation: to reach the poorest, most vulnerable, isolated people and create trajectories towards financial independence.

Titled “Arpita Mandal,” this video directed by Mark Littman of Bodega peers closer into Arpita’s journey with Trickle Up and how the empowerment of its services have not only boosted her financial situation, but also her outlook on the future and self worth.

Bodega has lent its talent and expertise to media messaging for Trickle Up for more than a decade. Littman, Bodega co-founder/partner, has journeyed to such places as India and Guatemala to tell the story of the nonprofit Trickle Up.
