In early 2015 villagers from this area showed interest in working toward self-sustainability to raise them selves out of poverty. Through Slavery Prevention lessons alongside Transformational Community Development, these families had the first glimmer of hope and leaving their life of extreme poverty.

Looking to the successes of their neighboring state, Jharkhand, villagers in this cluster hope to be the new model for West Bengal. As they work to unify their efforts under a common purpose, GHNI leaders see potential for many trailblazers to rise up and lead the region toward self-sustainability.
