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.

Simple Beginnings of Sweet Success

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This month in Dhoker Jhara Village, we taught the ladies how to earn money from different methods. We had been teaching them these methods before, but they needed time to make their decisions. We tried suggesting a fast food business to many women, but most of them replied that they wouldn’t be able to do this work. Their closed mindsets prevented them from moving ahead.

Changing Old Perceptions

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This past quarter, villagers in Dhoker Jhara have been working hard on income generation.  Among them, Mohit, started a men’s hair salon. He had been afraid to run his own salon because people used to say that tribal villagers are not allowed to cut hair. Only some castes could cut hair. After education, villagers now understand that anyone may open a salon. By seeing Mohit’s example, other villagers were encouraged to increase their income generation.
