Women Empowerment and Income Generation Project (one of the 21 projects that make up the BCHD umbrella project) supported 135 original families and 70 families with buffaloes. The project participants have not only been increasing their income through the inputs provided by the project but have also initiated projects for the benefit of the whole community.
On one of the PSRP sessions it was noted that the limitation to increasing income from goats and buffaloes was that their village did not have a paved road to drive on. So in their own initiative and effort, the members of Gayeatri Pariwar Bachat Samuha have been able to build 2 km motor road by lobbying Rs.100,000 from Kamal Mai VDC and District Development Office.
The community members donated 2 weeks’ worth of labor for this project. Men of the community also gave their full support for this project. The road joins Kamalamai VDC with the capital of the district.
