The Planning and Planting Connection

Jatapara Village, India

 

Most villagers think about farming once the rainy season starts. Before this, they neither think about farming, nor plan for it. Though their livelihoods depend on farming, other than during the rainy season,  they forget about it. Recently, villagers were taught more about farming, how to start planning and planting. These lessons in agriculture will help with both food and income.

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.

Cyclone Farni hits India and Bangladesh

GHNI teams and villagers have been hit by Cyclone Farni and we expect several more to be impacted as the storm moves through India and Bangladesh.  We have not yet connected with our staff experiencing the storm, but we know they will be met with many people seeking help after the storm passes.

As we know more, we will share.  Will you please offer a hand up to villagers seeking to end their own extreme poverty who have been hit by this monster storm?  Let's help them keep progressing forward.
