Especially in traditional societies, they take a lot of the strain of child rearing and house work, expending most of their energy and time in looking after their families.
The team have visited her and her family a few times, and her story is that of many adivashi indigenous women in the area.
The family live in great poverty - their land is barely able to provide enough food for everyone during the short growing season between the draught of summer and flooding monsoon rains of winter.
She is struggling with great weakness and aenemia, caused by deficiencies through the poor diet, as well as frequent pregnancies, breastfeeding, and intense physical work in the heat.
Hirondi's eldest daughter is 16 and pregnant. Since she is unmarried, her social future in this very traditional society looks dire.
The team are looking after her and supporting her as best as they can - and they hope that her own baby and her younger siblings can have a better and healthier future.
