Development among Rural Community in Orissa, India Get Progress
[ePrayer – Pray for the Rural Community Development in India]
Partner EFICOR, in partnership with SCOPE, launched community development projects aiming at sustainable livelihood and capacity building in villages in Orissa, India, where most of the villagers are illiterate, lack of new agricultural skills, and face difficulty in transportation. CEDAR has supported this programme since 2008.
Thanks to our God that through the work of our partner EFICOR in India, there are 43 adults in the project’s villages who can now read and write simple Oriya alphabets & important words. Many of them now understand the importance of education and are willing to arrange their children to schools. In the past, the poor farmers got to work far from home after the harvest season. But now, they take the initiative to form groups in applying jobs under the government scheme. So as a result, the seasonal migration has decreased by 20%. In addition, thanks God that staff of SCOPE are now capable to manage on financial management & documentation independently after training.
Pray for the Rural Community Development Projects in India:
- Due to high temperature & water scarcity, villagers urgently need watershed development & advocacy with the government on water issue. May God lead the project of watershed development and let more people show concern to this matter.
