Increasing Income...

The Community Based Disaster Preparedness Program (CBDP) aims at building resilience among the vulnerable people to ensure that they are able to cope up with the natural disasters. Since poverty is one important factor, and dependence on agriculture for the poor means, they are left with no alternate sources of income, SWI has begun to support over 500 families through trainings in animal husbandry, poultry and micro-fishery. This will mean that the selected families will have other alternate sources of income throughout the year besides the crop that is seasonal. Ms. Barnali Roy and Ms. Rekha Soren along with their team are busy ensuring that the trainings are completed on time and the fishes, chickens and other materials are distributed properly to the deserving community.
