Self-Sustaining Measures

Jatapara Village, India

 

This month, we taught students the value of education, one of the five focusses of Transformational Community Development (TCD). Before, students only studied in school, and after school they would usually just play. At the training, the importance of self study after school was emphasised.  Now the students concentrate on studies after school, as well as play.

Motor Pump Solves Drought Problem

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This month I reminded people about health and hygiene. Some families like to buy vegetables from the market rather than growing them on their own. I talked to two such families about the difference between conventional vegetables which they eat and organic ones. They were motivated and now grow organic vegetables in their kitchen garden!

Kitchen Garden Research

Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

 

Yakawlang has cold weather, but some of our kitchen garden vegetables like radishes and lettuce are harvested twice a year without need of a greenhouse. The local people like to eat these two kinds of vegetables more than other vegetables.

Village Chiefs Challenge Committees

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This quarter we conducted an Awareness Programme by meeting villagers individually as well as in a group. Our focus was to get all villagers on the same page so that they could see the root cause of their problems and take steps to overcome them.

The Planning and Planting Connection

Jatapara Village, India

 

Most villagers think about farming once the rainy season starts. Before this, they neither think about farming, nor plan for it. Though their livelihoods depend on farming, other than during the rainy season,  they forget about it. Recently, villagers were taught more about farming, how to start planning and planting. These lessons in agriculture will help with both food and income.
