The Road to Ration

875 people reside in Takhtpur village but only 135 people have BPL cards. They have to walk 4 km to another village, to access the Ration Distributor. It is just not the distance but the terrible condition of the way, which makes it even more difficult to carry ration back and forth. “In order to come here, we have to pass by jungle and around 4-5 canals, walk in mud, and just now my sack fell in the mud.” - says Roshan,one of the residents who suffer due to lack of a ration distribution shop in their village. People of Takhatpur demand for a ration distribution shop in their own village so they would not have to cross the jungle and canals all the way to another village, just to get ration. - Community correspondent Ramlal Baiga from Takhtapur village in Umaria district of Madhya Pradesh. To help them with their plea, please call Secretary of Takhatpur- +91-9329781073 - and ask him to address community correspondent Ramlal and his village's appeal for a ration shop.   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 organizations.
