The Village Improvement Project, running in full swing in four flood-affected villages of Bihar, led the initiative of a tree plantation activity at village Parsauni recently. In the first phase of this project, 50 Mango saplings were distributed among 19 women beneficiaries of the village to create long term sustainability for them. These women were trained by our Village Improvement Project Assistant, Mr. Ajeet Kumar to plant saplings on their own.
Swami Kundananand ji, disciple of His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj ji, Founder and Head of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS), was also present on the occasion.
It is noteworthy that DJJS, under its Rural Development initiative, partnered with Women’s Empowerment International Foundation (WEIF), Canada, to undertake the Village Improvement Project in Bihar and make poor families self-sustainable.
