Bihar’s Road To Development

Connectivity through roads plays a crucial role in promoting the economic, social and cultural development of a region. Roads act as a gateway to other regions and states and also the opportunities which come with these new connections. The residents of Barari village in Katihar district are still isolated from the mainstream, thus depriving them the benefits of the country's economic growth. VV-PACS Correspondent Navita reports. "The nearest market is about 6 kms away. We have to walk all the way as there is no means of transport here", says Yamuna Devi. The administration needs to understand the impact of connectivity as it is a critical link for progress in rural areas. Call to Action: Please call Mr Alauddin, Assembly Member on 9934468304 and ask him to get the road constructed.

The videos generated by the network will be able to highlight voices from the margins, providing skills to social communicators to provide advocacy tools to community based organisations.
