Achieving the Goal

Koubah Bingo, Burkina Faso

 

Mainasara and Fatima had quite a lot of work done within the last quarter. The milling machine has been of immense benefit to the locals since it was set up and the accounts put together. Mainasara and the Income Generation Committee keep ensuring that the accounting is done properly, and that every participant of this Income Generation programme is issued a membership card that records how much is paid each time they use the milling machine.

Life-Giving Water Returns

Nkar, Cameroon

 

The community of Nkar has been living harmoniously, looking for solutions to their daily life requirements--especially clean water. In the dry season, the situation is extremely difficult as people trek over kilometres to search for the precious liquid in valley springs and puddles. This has been the burden of women and children, preventing them from actively participating in other economic ventures.

Clean Handpump, Healthy Village

Clean Handpump, Healthy Village
Jatapara Village, India

In Jatapara, village we noticed that women washing their dishes near the handpump weren't keeping the washing ash/soap inside of containers. So we´ve asked them to keep the ash/soap inside containers and help keep the handpump area clean.

Many ladies understood but few of them still don’t help to keep the area clean and tidy. They ask why they should clean up after others when they are only taking drinking water.

Our kitchen gardening idea continues to do well, gathering more support each day.

Kitchen Gardens Improve, Drought Persists

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This month, I reminded people about health and hygiene. Some families like to buy vegetables from the market rather than grow them on their own. I spoke with two such families about the difference between conventionally farmed vegetables they eat versus organic ones. They were sufficiently motivated to now grow organic vegetables in their own kitchen gardens!

Potato Program a Boon for Village

Jatapara Village, India

 

Twenty years ago, people used to grow vegetables on their own for family consumption, but the current generation hardly seems to do this anymore. This year, we decided to cultivate potatoes on a large scale. People were not prepared to do this, but we spoke with them and convinced them that if we grow potatoes together, then together we can succeed.
