VV-PACS Correspondent Aarti Valimiki reports on another terrible road in Bhatiyagarh Village, Madhya Pradesh.
With no functional drains in the village, sewage and rain water collects on the street. As a result, the road has become a resting ground for the local buffaloes. The children say it is hard for them to get to school or play. Others find it a hindrance in going about their daily work.
Call to Action
: Please call Ramgulam Ahirwar the Chief Officer on 9179816526 and ask him to ensure that the road is repaired.
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.
In this video of UPS Manwan Awoora school, Kupwara, Kashmir, the community correspondent Pir Azhar shows us that there are nine classes for 250 students, and due to lack of space, the lower primary classes are held outside in the open. Also the school has only 7 teachers.
Houseboats are a major tourist attraction in Kashmir. History says that this tradition started in the 1800s and since then it has created a unique heritage in the tourism industry.
