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!

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.

The Value of Education

Jatapara Village, India

The Jatapara community is doing well. This month we had a small parent meeting. In this, they were told about the courses and that they should send their children to school and encourage them to not be absent from classes.

Striving to Make Improvements

Jatapara Village, India

Villagers in Jatapara Village are doing well, and they are emerging as role models for other villages. The women here are getting curious regarding having a healthy life. A few days ago, we had an issue with the platform for the water hand pump because there was no proper flooring done near the hand pump, and so it was getting muddy nearby. So we thought of making a proper cemented platform for the hand pump, but we failed because one of the ladies said, “Don’t make it in my land.”

Representing the Poor

Jatapara Village, India

Jatapara Village is very grateful towards GHNI, as villagers never thought of achieving many things on their own regarding clean water and healthy food. Last year, villagers learnt many things about living a healthy life. Nowadays, villagers have started raising their voice if they see something wrong done against them because now they know their rights.

Growing in Unity

Jatapara Village, India

This quarter, we taught villagers a new technique of threshing to save time and energy. They used to simply beat it on rocks or by using a paddle machine. Both of the techniques take 1-2 months to complete the threshing. We simply fixed the threshing machine with a motor, and now they can thresh the grain all day without getting tired. They can finish threshing within weeks now, and rest of the time they can grow other vegetable to eat or for income purposes.
