This month we are excited seeing fruit of our labour. Two months back, me and some villagers had planted wheat paddy, now it’s grown big and ready to become a model of the second cropping. Because of the less water, people didn’t want to risk their capital on second cropping, but we successfully showed them that; from the nearby seasonal river, we can get enough water to cultivate our farms. We blocked the river with mud and stones and made a small dam. Water on this dam is sufficient enough to fulfill the need of our farms. We are hoping that next time more other villagers will get involve with us for the second cropping. It’s very hard to convince people for something which they are not used to. Making them do second cropping has always been a great challenge for us.

We have started new group in a place called ‘camp’. There mostly people are migrated from Bangladesh. I have given them the lesson on relief and development with the story of river crossing. They are very enthusiastic to learn themselves and agreed to teach others as well. The people in the camp are living in very congested area, many houses has even no drain to pass the wastage water of their house. There is no drainage facility available. People are suffering from diseases. So I have decided to do the TCD lessons with them to have development in their community.
Computer center is also going on well. The kids are now learning school course. We have kids from different classes such as grade 3rd to university level. Such as one young girl name Priyanka H., she is very interested in learning computer, though I wrote about her before. Her father is a carpenter and mother is a maid servant. Priyanka is learning computer since one year with our center. She did very well in her computer subject in the school.
These are but a few of the reports I have received monthly from our TCD ventures in India. Thanks to you, we are able to move forward in many other villages and in many other venues of TCD! Thank you!!! Daniel
