Simple Beginnings of Sweet Success

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This month in Dhoker Jhara Village, we taught the ladies how to earn money from different methods. We had been teaching them these methods before, but they needed time to make their decisions. We tried suggesting a fast food business to many women, but most of them replied that they wouldn’t be able to do this work. Their closed mindsets prevented them from moving ahead.

Changing Old Perceptions

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This past quarter, villagers in Dhoker Jhara have been working hard on income generation.  Among them, Mohit, started a men’s hair salon. He had been afraid to run his own salon because people used to say that tribal villagers are not allowed to cut hair. Only some castes could cut hair. After education, villagers now understand that anyone may open a salon. By seeing Mohit’s example, other villagers were encouraged to increase their income generation.

Kharibari Village, India

 

Last quarter, we pursued practical work in Kharibari Village. We had already installed one street light in the middle of the village and were getting ready for another one, but one panchayat member suggested we approach the local MLA for solar lights instead. So, one fine evening, the villagers got together to write an application for solar lights, along with a culvert for the village.

This November, farmers of Dhoker Jhara Village focused on a new crop option. Since the climatic conditions were not good this year, productivity of rice had fallen. Villagers were advised to grow mustard in large amounts.
