The most inspiring talk was give be the award winner Champa who told her story regarding her struggle to help build the chulahs. She told the audience that she was exactly in the same condition as the participants themselves. But through her sustained efforts and along with her husband Kanji she was able to help build thousands of chulahs taught to her by Heritage Foundation. She explained that she now was a woman of extraordinary means which she demonstrated by flashing her silver jewellery and by relating the wealth that she has acquired. As she has earned over Rs. 5,000,000 she had a right to show the potential of working hard in furthering a cause, which can also help others to achieve a better quality of life.
