Farming Within Their Strengths

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

This month, we had an opportunity to meet with our Regional Field Leader, Sushil. We decided to work in a specific manner in order to get a better picture of our success or failure. We now have better steps to initiate. Deciding this, we started working toward deadlines for each of our targeted work areas.

This month we spent time teaching the villagers about saving money to invest in their crops. Since all the villagers were busy in their rice fields, only part of the committee met to discuss our next steps.

After encouraging people in Hemantpur Village, some of the villagers took initiative to cultivate seasonal vegetables. Water was lifted from a pond, but it was not enough to fulfill the water needs of all the people. They asked for help to dig a well.

Income Generation Plans

In the villages Ranga and Hemantpur, as members of committee have been discussing about the scope of goat farming and taking mini loan. They have come to the conclusion to take initiative in both of these areas, as most of them are confident in these areas. If they get mini loan from GHNI, they do not need to go to the lenders who give money with high interest. Also for income generation, they are planning for each person to raise two goats.

Villagers Get the Vision

Due to the nature of our work in the field, it's not always possible to provide a high quality photo. We're happy to provide a current visual of our work despite the quality.

Villagers are very excited about the Transformational Community Development (TCD) programs. Last month, they got a hand pump, and before that, they received also a bore-well. Additionally, a river water-lifting pipeline is being built for increased cultivation production. Before, they were dependent on weather for cultivating vegetables and crops.  Now they are no longer depend on weather. They are really excited for this!
