Re: my experience of development of my village in Santal Pargana division
Dear Senthil and all,
Let us do the best what we can in the capacity as an individual and as a member of any bigger group.I would share my personal effort for my village in Mayurbhanj district of Orissa.A small village with 23 youths all under matriculate but literate.We started with small microfinance three years back(My personal contribution) and today we are dreaming of taking over weekly hats with a yearly bid value of Approx.Rupees 2Lakh. I have seen local resources are enough to make them grow substancially.We have taken a pond on lease from Panchayat Samity and entered into pisciculture.Our first harvest during next Makar Sankranti is expected to fetch us atleast Rs.50,000/- to 60,000/-.We have ensured that every child goes to school.Our next effort would be to see that every child goes beyond High school.I am trying to get a coop. society registered shortly.I am hopeful that in next two to three years every family's income would be doubled and ensure engagement for all the youth throughout the year.
This is all without any support from outside.No NGO & No Govt. Infact self help groups have been more of Govt. supported projects where people find only scope with limited oppertunity.It has not been able to create enterpreneurs in the true spirit.I consciousely avoided that route.Even for coop societies the long term prospects appear not so bright.But we are trying out.
With warm regards.
