Priyanka is a girl you need to meet. Her father’s name is Pradip and her mother’s name is Shriti. Pradip is a carpenter and does not earn sufficient money to sustain his family.

Animal Husbandry Brings Hope

Jatapara Village, India

February was a blessed month for villagers and a milestone for us. With the help of GHNI, we distributed 36 goats to villagers to help them on their way to being self-sustainable and achieve their dream for a better future.

A Boy Who Wants to Give Back

Hoogly Village, India

As a carpenter, Kotto and his wife Minoti understand that computer knowledge is as important as regular education. Since they did not study much, it is their heartiest desire that their daughter and son, Rimpa and Rupam respectively, receive a good education while they are young. Their 14-year-old son Rupam is studying in class 8th.  

Planted Visions Bloom

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

It’s a remarkable sign of transformation when we see something happening by itself, especially after we have been trying to do this for a long time. Last month was quite surprising for me as I saw two villagers conducting business, which is non-traditional for our community.

Motivated to Keep Planting

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

This month, it was encouraging that we didn’t have to tell the villagers to plant their next crop, just after harvesting rice. They did it by themselves. The village committee had arranged a meeting and decided to do a second crop. However, because of an insufficient water source, they could not do it to a large extent, but only in places where they could drag the water. They mainly grew mustard plants and some seasonal vegetables.

 

Taking New Initiatives

Jatapara Village, India

We have started the new year with lots of plans, resolutions, and a deadline. I started with coaching villagers to plant a second crop, which no one does, usually. I encouraged them to work together for cultivation. Some of those who had seen the successful cultivation we had shown them chose to grow wheat as the second crop, while others grew mustard.

 

A Young Girl’s Dream within Reach

Hoogly Village, India

I have many life stories of real little children sincerely taking every chance to make their future better. Today, I would like to introduce Riya, a 12-year-old girl who is sincerely perusing her studies with the dream of becoming a schoolteacher. Riya’s father, Tarak, is a rented auto driver, and her mother, Tinku, is a housewife who also works part-time as maid. Tarak earns enough money to support the family but cannot afford a good education for his daughter.

 

New Students Added to Computer Classes

Hoogly Village, India

The last three months have been spent working on developing the computer center, adding courses like multimedia. In order to do that, we needed to hire a new teacher. We charge only a minimum course fee to the poorer students, so we need to promote the computer center to gain more students. Keeping this in mind, we have printed a new banner. Now, as a result, new students are coming to our computer center.
