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.

Motor Pump Solves Drought Problem

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This month I reminded people about health and hygiene. Some families like to buy vegetables from the market rather than growing them on their own. I talked to two such families about the difference between conventional vegetables which they eat and organic ones. They were motivated and now grow organic vegetables in their kitchen garden!
