Sowing Resilient Crops

Jatapara Village, India

In Jatapara Village, our Transformational Community Development (TCD) taught the community how to grow crops with low rainfall. Suggestions on how to grow fast growing crops in hilly areas were made to farmers. Farmers like Rubi and Bablu have performed well and rice farming is going well here. We are teaching villagers to drink clean water and eat healthy food.

Thank you!

Life is going well in Hoogly Village. We are enjoying the Durga Puja festival, one of the biggest festivals of the Bengali people. Last month, we celebrated Teacher's Day in our computer centre. We also taught more children how to wash their hands and its importance.

Thank you!

Making Deliveries to Tribes

Kharibari Village, India

Last quarter was sowing season in Kharibari Village, so we did not have any weekly meetings. The villagers were really very busy with sowing and planting. We continued our Saturday special classes for children.

I personally visited Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Jalpaiguri and delivered Nepiar grass to the Goat Loan Programme beneficiaries.

Overcoming Obstacles

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

This quarter in Dhoker Jhara Village, we learned a few more techniques for farming. This season, we didn’t get enough rainfall in time. Because of less rainfall, crops didn’t get enough of water and we didn’t get satisfying results for harvesting.

Celebrating Their Teacher

Hoogly Village, India

Today I would like to share with you regarding our computer centre. Last month, a few of our children celebrated Teacher’s Day in our computer centre. The name of our teacher is *Aarav. He is very willing to serve the children, so the children decided to surprise Aarav. I am very glad that the children are doing so well with their computer courses.

Elevating Quality of Life

Jatapara Village, India

In the small nearby village of Jhopa, people are planting vegetables to add healthy nutrients into their meal. A woman named *Priscila showed us a new way to grow a big and tasty pumpkin. Before, she used to sow and harvest in just one place; but now, she first sows the seed in a very wet area and, when the small plant comes up, she replants it with soil in a place where it should continue to grow. In this way, tasty and big pumpkins can be harvested.

Increasing Income Opportunities

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

In the month of August, a man named *Manvay said he would challenge himself to earn more than 1,500 rupees per month (about 175€ £160 200 CHF). So, he built a saloon (barber shop) beside the road. During the month of July, after he finished with his field work, he started concentrating on his saloon. He will run it full time after he makes his saloon look good.
