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.

So, one fine evening, the villagers got together to write an application for solar lights, along with a culvert for the village.
