Animal Husbandry Jumpstarted

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

Dhoker Jhara Village has made good progress so far. Villagers now know how to maintain good health by growing green vegetables in their kitchen gardens and using them in meals. We have hand pumps for safe drinking water. We had to postpone planting trees since we are not allowed to go out of our homes. So far, all students are coming to school. We have decided to graduate from this village, and so we will do that very soon, too!

Marriage Snack Contract a Success

Jatapara Village, India

 

This month before lockdown, we discussed with the women of the group regarding the sources of income for the month of March, April and May, as selling nankeens and sev packets do not increase income quickly. In the meeting we concluded to move forward making packets of snacks for marriage and other functions of the village and neighbouring areas, as the next three to four months are the season of weddings in this area.

Hand Tractor is Hard Sell

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

As usual, we are continuously trying to empower women through small business. We are setting up a lady named Sonapati as an example. She started a small shop where she sells daily used things like soap, oil, rice and others.

Clean Toilets Recognised

Kharibari Village, India

 

Our constant efforts have finally paid off, as now all 17 families have their own toilet and are using them. But the biggest challenge is getting villagers to continue to use them. Generally, it seems that people start following instructions for a few days but then return back to their old habits.

Duck Farming Makes Waves

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

In Dhoker Jhara Village, following our Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons, people are continuously following the health and hygiene rules. They are using bathrooms to relieve themselves rather than in the forest and surrounding area.
