New Farming Techniques Increase Yield

Jarkhand Expansion, India


In the Month of August, the Transformational Community Development (TCD) work has been good. Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, an initiative by the Government of India in which affordable housing will be provided to the urban poor, was not available in the village before, but now is. Many women now have made their passbook with our help. This passbook is proof that you can benefit from the programme. I have also helped a man to get the advantage of this governmental initiative by assisting him to gather the needed documents to obtain the Passbook.


In August, women work in the fields. Three years ago, we taught them the method so that they can have better results in farming, and also get better income by using the modern methods. This year, many people are following our methods to have better outcomes from the field. 


During August and September, we have made plans to earn some income, because people don't have income on a monthly or weekly basis. So we called a group of women and talked about Income Generation. We have made a plan to sell eggs, pakodas, chanachur, etc. at evening time, from 4 pm to 7 pm. Through TCD, we have helped them understand that it is contrary to community development for a wine shop to be near our shop, and we will work diligently to avoid this situation. We will first take the permission from all the people to not sell wine surrounding our shop.


Thank you,
