Fresh reports “semi-edited” from source …

It’s a remarkable sign of transformation when we see something happening by itself, which we have been trying to accomplish a long time. This was so surprising as I saw two persons of our village doing business which is out of the tradition(Santal).

He is Manik. He said, “In starting it was difficult for me to chose which vegetables should I grow to make profit, because vegetables like tomato and leafy vegetables are profitable, but cannot be preserved for a long time, that’s why I started growing vegetables which can be preserved for long time like, potato, onion etc. Now I have experience to grow in large scale”. He thanks GHNI team for helping him recognize his potential.

I also found other man, Bablu, selling spicy chickpeas during sports day in our village. These are signs which shows us that whatever vision we are putting in our villagers mind for them to grow their lifestyle it has started working and they are making it true.  (Babujan)

Rupam, is 14, in 8th grade.

His father is a carpenter and mother a house wife. Rupam’s parents did not study much so it is their desire to educate him.  They know computer knowledge is as important as the regular education. His father asked if I could educate his son in our new GHNI computer center.

Rupam said, “I know how important the computer education is, and there are lot of poor students who cannot afford computer education. In future I would like to teach computer to other kids, those who cannot afford  for their computer course.”  (Sushil)

Jatapara Village goats …

This was a blessed month for villagers and a milestone for us.  With the help of GHNI, we distributed 36 goats to the villagers to make them self sustain and make them able to see the dream for their better future.

Like this family there are many families who have got so much of help with this initiative. We are so much thankful for GHNI and all who raised their hands for helping us with their effort and resources.

There is a tradition in Santal people that they never save the money for their future need, instead of that they prefer to take loan from others when they are in need, which cause them trapped by the money landers sometime. But this initiative of animal husbandry will make their mind to save their property in the form of animal which would be used in their need in future.  (Manu)

New Kolkata(Calcutta) Computer Centre Excitement & Story …

Unexpected Dream Fulfilled

“Shankar is very excited in his computer learning experience. He is from an extremely poor economic background, and his parents do not want him to continue with his studies. He wants to learn computers. When he first joined here, he said that he had never sat in front of a computer before. He is learning very fast.

‘I had never thought in my life that I can learn computer. But one day my friend asked me whether I would be interested to join a computer class. I thought that I could not even pursue my school education properly, how is it possible that I can learn computers?

‘Also I had in my mind that anything related to computers are very expensive. I can never dream of affording it. But when I came here, I came to know that computer education can also be affordable.

‘Though initially I did not get any support from my home, yet still I decided to continue with this class, as I am finding interest in it. I managed to get one old keyboard at home, and practice typing, because I also dream to use computer to its fullest.’

“We are now in the 3rd month of our new Kolkata(Calcutta) Computer Training Centre. Our journey had been very well. The students are really catching up pace in their learning. After going through some theory lessons, now each one of them are provided with individual computer terminals for practicing whatever they have learned. They are done with almost all the important features and uses of Microsoft Word, Powerpoint. Next is basics of Windows OS, like installing and uninstalling applications, Internet, and others. They are taught by constantly reminding them that every small detail that they are learning will be helpful for their future. Now they can say that computer education has never been so fun before. ”
