Water & Income - Tea Garden Top Priorities

Tea Garden Cluster, India

 

Water is one of the five pillars of Transformational Community Development (TCD). Kharibari villagers had no potable Water and they rely heavily on the village well for everyday needs, be it cooking, cleaning, or drinking; they had no other option. We had been trying to get Public Health Engineering (PHE) water connexion for the village for quite some time. We had applied to the Concern Department in this regard but had only received lip service.

Income Sources Explored, School Re-opens

Binodpur Village, India

 

In Binodpur Village, 80% of the villagers are dependent on agriculture. Paddy rice is the main profitable crop. Due to cyclones and unusual rain patterns, many are not willing to continue agricultural work. Villagers go to the city as day-labourers. Unfortunately, after the lock-down, construction work is not going well.

Tuition Free School Helps Families

Shri Ambra, India

 

Transformational Community Development (TCD) produces good fruit, and education is a significant part of that fruit!

 

We are working on a three-year plan and investing our time teaching people and conducting surveys. Our tuition-free school opened earlier this year. We look to build relationships with students and their parents through meetings.

Women Generate Income to Help Families

Jatapara and Jhopa Village, India

 

In Jatapara Village, we have been helping women with Income Generation. Income Generation is a strategic component of Transformational Community Development (TCD). So, we gave them training on making snacks and fast food. About 30 women from the village took the training and have started making and selling snacks and fast food.

New Villages Identified and Trained

Tea Garden Cluster, India

 

As most Transformational Community Development (TCD) villages will be graduating this year, we could already see the impact in the other surrounding villages. In this regard, we had already begun identifying the most open villages and noted them. Accordingly, we have already started working on categorising them into different clusters and appointing TCD and community leaders.

Tuition-Free Centre Blesses Village

Shri Ambra, India

 

In 2022, Transformational Community Development (TCD) has been effective thus far. We started our tuition-free After-School Centre and it is going well. The students are coming regularly. A few of them are absent sometimes, but then they return.

 

We plan to have a Parents' Meeting, soon. Until then, we will continue with our tuition-free After School Centre. Students are playing every evening after the Centre activities.

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Shri Ambra, India

 

In the month of October, the Transformational Community Development (TCD) work has not reached its original goals. With the help of tutoring, we started with ten students, but they are not going to their respective schools. We tried to encourage them to come back by introducing new ideas and possible actions. However, they are not showing any interest in it now. So, we decided to leave that particular path.
