An entire community kept in the dark

Ansara village, in Jahanabad district of Bihar, hasn’t had electricity for decades. In this report, Community Correspondent Asha Devi captures the lives of thousands of people who have lived their life in darkness.

CALL TO ACTION: Call Mr. Sanjeev Kumar Varma, Block Development Officer of Makhdumpur Block, on +91-843118078, and pressurize him into providing electricity to the village so that this community.

The village is home to over 1000 residents, but there has been no effort to give the community access to a basic technology that the rest of the nation takes for granted. No access to electricity directly translates into poor farming technology, a lower standard of living, and a low standard of education for the children who find it impossible to study indoors after dark.

This is a PACS-VV video. The Poorest Areas Civil Society (PACS) Programme and Video Volunteers have come together to create the Community Correspondents Network. The videos created by the network bring out voices from the margins, providing communications skills to marginalised individuals and advocacy tools to community-based organisations.
