Gathering of Over 1,000 Villagers

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

We organised soccer and lots of other sports to gather people. More than 1,000 people gathered as a result, and we used the opportunity to promote Transformational Community Development (TCD) to surrounding villages.

 

We successfully tested the water pump we had purchased to irrigate the second crop. We must still purchase pipes in order to make it fully operational. People are excited and the Water Committee is regularly meeting to discuss how to best use the water pump.

 

TCD Update

  • Water – People are drinking water from the hand pump.
  • Food – Due to heavy rain, some crops were damaged but are still in good condition.
  • Income Generation – Villagers are selling fast food (prepared food) now, in the local market.
  • Education – Students want to join hostels, so we are planning on how to accommodate more students.
  • Wellness – People are healthy, but some of them were sick because of the rainy season. No serious illness was recorded.

 

Thank you!
