Person-to-Person Change

Jatapara Village, India

We all know the proverb, “Unity is strength.” The statement is so powerful and effective that it can change and transform a whole nation, but we are applying this right here in Dhoker Jhara Village. We have been trying to bring change by using a person-to-person method. Since this is nontraditional, we are working with those villagers who are interested. This method is running well, but we are considering extending this method to families. To do so, we are re-recruiting volunteers, where each will go and teach ten families on behalf of us.

This month, we gave the villagers training about unity several times, so that the villagers will understand the meaning and importance of unity, which will help them to operate the system properly and they can take advantage of being taught by the volunteers.
