Youth Spread COVID-19 Awareness

Kharibari Village, India

 

Our awareness programme about COVID-19 continued amidst fear and anxiety in the Grassmore tea garden area, where volunteers took initiative. Initially, the tea belt was not affected by the novel coronavirus, but after the arrival of migrants from different parts of India, positive cases shot up like never before. To make matters worse, the medical facilities in the tea garden are in poor conditions and there were no proper places to quarantine.

Clean Water, Balanced Breakfast

Jatapara Village, India

 

During the month of August, more attention was given to plantation work, as a mango orchard is being planted for the first time. Sapling planting started last month when a 4-acre area was planted with 450 mango saplings per acre. These plants are also being fenced to protect them from animals.

Emerging Entrepreneurs

Kharibari Village, India

 

For the last several months, I had tried to motivate villagers of Kharibari Village to start their own business. However, they were not very keen on starting a business, as it involves risks; instead, they had been relying on the most convenient source of income, which is working as a daily wage earner. But since a job may not be available every day, I hoped to help them start a small side business in order to earn good income.

Awareness Programmes Continue

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This quarter we did lots of awareness programmes by meeting with villagers individually as well as in groups. Our focus was to bring all people up to the same page so that they might be able to see the root cause of their problems and take steps to overcome them.

Greetings from Binodpur. Thanks for being an important part of Binodpur’s development. Without your help we would not be able to do what we do.

 

We are happy to inform you that our government has declared phase two of easing restrictions, which means that things are beginning to go back to normal. We hope that next month school, college and train services will restart.

On Boars and Orchards

Jatapara Village, India

 

In the month of June, villagers here cultivate corn. By the time the crops are ready to harvest, wild boar destroy these crops, causing huge losses for the farmers. So this year we suggested that farmers try cultivating pigeon peas (arhar/toor) instead of corn. As the boars do not destroy these crops, there is a reduced risk of loss.
