THE CHALLENGES: The disease of extreme poverty is, and forever will be, the benchmark of Wellness among the disadvantaged, when held to measure alongside the longitudes and latitudes of Advantage.

Goats for Opportunity

During the last few months in RT Village, we did community development work by loaning goats for income generation. As in BT Village, we distributed five goats for income generation among poor families of RT Village who have nothing to build their income.

I visited RT Village on Thursday, and we met key leaders in RT Village. The influential leaders of RT Village helped us choose the families for goat loan program. We explained how the goat loan program could be a source of income generation. We chose some families in RT Village who are living their lives in extreme poverty.  

 

Spawning Mushroom Crops.

In Doke Bazaar, the mushroom farming is progressing. We have opened the mushroom bags at all three places and are now watering the crops twice a day. We are hoping for the best result. We also went to Doke Bazzar for a field visit. We taught them how to open mushroom bags and how to water properly. They were excited to see mushrooms growing, and now their hopes are high to be self-sufficient. We are trying our best to improve our community in financial matters.
