Marriage Snack Contract a Success

Jatapara Village, India

 

This month before lockdown, we discussed with the women of the group regarding the sources of income for the month of March, April and May, as selling nankeens and sev packets do not increase income quickly. In the meeting we concluded to move forward making packets of snacks for marriage and other functions of the village and neighbouring areas, as the next three to four months are the season of weddings in this area.

Clean Handpump, Healthy Village

Clean Handpump, Healthy Village
Jatapara Village, India

In Jatapara, village we noticed that women washing their dishes near the handpump weren't keeping the washing ash/soap inside of containers. So we´ve asked them to keep the ash/soap inside containers and help keep the handpump area clean.

Many ladies understood but few of them still don’t help to keep the area clean and tidy. They ask why they should clean up after others when they are only taking drinking water.

Our kitchen gardening idea continues to do well, gathering more support each day.

Potato Program a Boon for Village

Jatapara Village, India

 

Twenty years ago, people used to grow vegetables on their own for family consumption, but the current generation hardly seems to do this anymore. This year, we decided to cultivate potatoes on a large scale. People were not prepared to do this, but we spoke with them and convinced them that if we grow potatoes together, then together we can succeed.

Self-Sustaining Measures

Jatapara Village, India

 

This month, we taught students the value of education, one of the five focusses of Transformational Community Development (TCD). Before, students only studied in school, and after school they would usually just play. At the training, the importance of self study after school was emphasised.  Now the students concentrate on studies after school, as well as play.

The Planning and Planting Connection

Jatapara Village, India

 

Most villagers think about farming once the rainy season starts. Before this, they neither think about farming, nor plan for it. Though their livelihoods depend on farming, other than during the rainy season,  they forget about it. Recently, villagers were taught more about farming, how to start planning and planting. These lessons in agriculture will help with both food and income.

Working Together to Meet Challenges

Jatapara Village, India

 

In Jatapara Village, everything is going good. We are excited seeing the work of transformation among the people of Jatapara. In this season, they are cultivating potatoes, tomatoes, and wheat. After taking awareness classes, they are taking their steps towards making profits by selling their vegetables. Since the stream is nearby this village, they are taking advantage of their water source.
