Update Report

It is really astonishing to see Tsunami affected villages returning to normal life within a period of two years, particularly comparing to the devastation. Fishing is going on as usual of course there are complaints that now the catch is reduced. The major change happened in the process of rehabilitation work is women from fishing community got visibility and importance in their community. They have been consulted by NGOs and Government, they were meeting often to discuss about their issues and development of the community. Women themselves have proven that they have an important role in disaster management and rebuilding families. We are happy that we are part of this process of rebuilding with your support. Still there is a long way to achieve women’s equality in the fishing community, but definitely the process is initiated. On behalf of the women and our organization our sincere Thanks to Globalgiving for helping us in our attempt to rebuild the lives of fishing community and in the process empowering women. In India in the Vedic teachings there is a saying in Sanskrit “Vasudhaiv Ktumbikam” that means the world is one family. In this conflict ridden world only during Tsunami rehabilitation work through the help we received from different corners of the world we felt that the world is one family. We thank each and every individual who supported us through Globalgiving.
