Making Repairs on Their Own

Kharibari Village, India

 

In our weekly meetings, the deplorable condition of a village road leading to the Jaldhaka River was often discussed. During rainy season, this village road is difficult to walk due to heavy mud and waterlogging. Villagers take this path to reach the nearby Jaldhaka River and the agricultural land on the bank of the river.

 

Adopting New Ways

Villagers of Jatapara were encouraged not to go bathroom in the open because they would pollute the environment. This will cause many diseases and problems. Their government started a program for villagers to build bathrooms in front of their homes. So, they were told to build a bathroom, but they were unable to do it on their own.
