31st March 2015 | Khullashpur village, Ambedkar Nagar District, Uttar Pradesh | Gayatri
Residents of this village wade through slush and sewage to travel anywhere. There are no provisions for a drainage system here which means all the dirty water from various pipelines converges on the main road.
Upon talking to the Village Head, Community Correspondent Gayatri was told that no mapping has been done so far for the drains and that when funds have been allotted in past, some residents did not allow drains to be built as they went past their houses.
Gayatri however has come back with a promise that the drains will be built as soon as funds are allotted.
Call to Action: Please call the Village Head on 09838132184 and ask him to help fix the road immediately.
About the Partnership: The Poorest Areas Civil Society (PACS) Programme and Video Volunteers have come together to create the Community Correspondents Network. 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.
If not for the intervention by our community correspondent, the poor villagers would have continued paying taxes for a land they didn't own.
Millions of lives were directly dependent on the once flourishing Apple farming industry of Kashmir.
