Localising Income Opportunties

Kharibari Village, India

 

In Khairbari Paschim Dhura Village, there is not a single grocery shop, and people have to go 1 km away to get even a minor thing like a match box. For a long time, I have longed to see a shop in the village itself run by the local Khairbari people, but they were very skeptical to start one. I was constantly pursuing the women of Khairbari to start a shop, but they wouldn’t listen.

Expanding to Full Grocery Shop

Kharibari Village, India

 

Last month, I met two members of Grassmore Tea Estate Co-operative Society and told them about Transformational Community Development (TCD). This tea garden is going through a transition phase and is often forced to close due to non payment of wages. They are interested and want to start TCD in the tea garden.

Self-Sustaining Measures

Jatapara Village, India

 

This month, we taught students the value of education, one of the five focusses of Transformational Community Development (TCD). Before, students only studied in school, and after school they would usually just play. At the training, the importance of self study after school was emphasised.  Now the students concentrate on studies after school, as well as play.
