All Slush No Concrete

On her way back from gathering firewood, Shyam Bai had a terrible fall as the path she was travelling on was more mud than concrete. There are no concrete roads in Ward number 11 of Takhtpur village and there are 32 families who need to cross this road every day. People often fall and hurt themselves on these roads.

VV PACS Community Correspondent Ramlal reports on the bad condition of the road in his village Takhtapur in Madhya Pradesh. The condition of this road has been the same since the last 25 years and nothing has been done by the Government to help the people.

Call to action- To help the people of Takhtapur village, please call the Village head on this number- 09753762547 and urge him to take actions towards making a concrete road for the people.

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.
