Honing Hairdressing Skills

Dhoker Jhara Village, India


We are focusing on every aspect of life and trying to give our best. After cleanliness, clean water, and developing good healthy habits, we are now thinking about good looks. Villagers have the mentality that looking good and presentable is not important for them, but this time, we are making an effort to help them think along this line—“have a good look.”

Harnessing Irrigation

In Dhoker Jhara Village, villagers are growing mustard these days, after the successful cultivation of mustard last year. They are growing it in big amounts this year to get more profit from the market. Everyone is realizing the need for water, especially this season. It’s hard to carry the water from river to the high ground where they grow mustard.


Healthy Habits in Rainy Season

In this season, we discussed the importance of good health in the village of Dhoker Jhara. Due to the rain, the village roads were very badly affected. The small children play in muddy puddles causing various sicknesses, such as colds, coughing, measles, ear pain, etc. Parents don’t understand that precaution is better than cure when their children fall sick.


Planting Superior and Healthier Crops

Dhoker Jhara Village has been cultivating grain. Usually this cultivation is completed within four months. However, in upper areas, we have sown fast-growing grains and it is very good. These seeds only took three months to grow and are very useful for poor villagers, as they can use them for food and toward the next cultivation. This will improve the financial situation of the villagers.


New Crops & Preventing Disease

In Dhoker Jhara Village, vegetable farming was encouraged for the month of July. Vegetables like ladyfinger and gourd was planted. During monsoon season, villagers used to plant maize, but they were getting less production. This time, farmers created a vegetable plantation in a separate field to gain more profit. Some planted vegetables for their own family use and some to sell.


Understanding Benefits of Toilet Rooms

Although we have been teaching health and hygiene lessons about using clean water and having a balanced diet, the one thing we always find difficult to help them understand is the importance of using the toilet. Therefore, this quarter, we focused on health awareness and especially about using the toilet rooms. We already have 30 toilet rooms in the village provided by the government three months ago.

We are seeing changes happening in the villagers’ lives with each step they take. Now we are coaching them with a new means to further prosper their hard work.
