From Kitchen to Market

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

In Dhokerjhara Village everything is going well. Villagers are eating healthy meals and drinking clean water. We encouraged the villagers to start kitchen gardens: some of them have started kitchen gardening and others are doing it on a big scale and even selling their produce on the market.

Warming Up to Change

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

We are working on two villages: Dhoker Jhara and Chandopani. Recently, we had a small meeting when we visited Chandopani. Initially, we were not getting a positive response, but now after some effort we met with some families who are ready to form a community and help us. Some villagers helped us by meeting with the block level person as well.

Awareness Programmes Continue

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This quarter we did lots of awareness programmes by meeting with villagers individually as well as in groups. Our focus was to bring all people up to the same page so that they might be able to see the root cause of their problems and take steps to overcome them.

Animal Husbandry Jumpstarted

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

Dhoker Jhara Village has made good progress so far. Villagers now know how to maintain good health by growing green vegetables in their kitchen gardens and using them in meals. We have hand pumps for safe drinking water. We had to postpone planting trees since we are not allowed to go out of our homes. So far, all students are coming to school. We have decided to graduate from this village, and so we will do that very soon, too!
