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!

Hand Tractor is Hard Sell

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

As usual, we are continuously trying to empower women through small business. We are setting up a lady named Sonapati as an example. She started a small shop where she sells daily used things like soap, oil, rice and others.

Duck Farming Makes Waves

In Dhoker Jhara Village, following our Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons, people are continuously following the health and hygiene rules. They are using bathrooms to relieve themselves rather than in the forest and surrounding area.

Toilet Use Faces Obstacles

Toilet Use Faces Obstacles
Dhoker Jhara Village, India

In Dhoker Jhara Village, 20 families were taught how to use the bathrooms and the procedures for keeping them clean. Amongst the 20 families, 7 of them are currently using their bathrooms regularly. Reasons for not using the bathrooms include no commode inside the bathroom and broken doors. In Dhoker Jhara, six people are using the kitchen garden. Villagers are ready for rabi (wheat) crop farming.

Many farmers from Dhoker Jhara are planting mustard and wheat.

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!

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.

Persevering Despite Criticism

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

In the spring, more attention was paid to increasing the income of the villagers in the group. To improve the financial condition of the group, training was given to the women to make fast foods, such as namkeens (healthy indian evening savory snacks), pakode (a fried Indian snack), etc. Few women tried these at home, and a few succeeded while few did not.
