A brainchild of Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (DJJS) and Women’s Empowerment International Foundation (WEIF), Canada, the Village Improvement Project has now reached two more villages in Bihar, Laxminiya and Bhelwa, located in Supaul and Madhepura districts, respectively. The motive is to make the women of villages economically, socially and literally empowered.
With the adoption of both the villages, in opening phase, a workshop on hygiene was conducted at Bhelwa village and Laxminiya village on February 26, 2015 and February 27, 2015, respectively. All the 25 women participants at Bhelwa village and 30 women participants at Laxminiya village enthusiastically participated in the workshop, which elevated their awareness on maintaining hygienic conditions at home and surroundings. They filled colours in informative drawings, which made the whole experience enjoyable and reminded them of their childhood days.
This workshop not only helped participants understand the importance of hygiene, but also motivated them to initiate this drive from their home itself. They vowed to join hands with us in this campaign that is a way forward to make society free of the menace of an unclean atmosphere.
