“Slowly but surely; Life in our Village is changing for the better”

Electricity the most basic rather essential things which we tend to take for granted are not easily available to people in rural areas. Kanpur one of the most backward villages of Girwa block of Rajasthan where people are struggling for such basic amenities.

Every evening when the lights glow in the street of Kanpur village, the face of villagers also light up with smile.

For us, life without electricity is most keenly felt in the street at night. We felt like blind in the night. “We had a lot of problems in the past, suffered lots of accidents, we could not move out of the house no matter how urgent the need be. Said Kamla Devi

A visionary effect has seen in the village when Manjari foundation under Sakhi project entered into the village for SHG formation. For the first time ever women got a platform to meet and discuss. Their motivation went to a next level when one village organization; Umang Gram Sangathan was formed and various village development related issues took place in VO meeting in which street light was one of the major issue. Seeing the problem of Kanpur village, Manjari Foundation in collaboration with frontier market took an initiative and distributed street lights, home lights and smoke less chulha to SHG women. In meeting, women and other villagers decided to install street lights on outside the VO office, every helmet of village, accident prone area and nand ghar where women hold SHG meetings.

When the lights were place in the street of Kanpur, there was a sense of excitement in the minds of the people. Now after sunset we are able to meet and discuss, Children can study after dark and with the help of smokeless chulha women can cook and most importantly we can walk around in the streets at night without any fear.

Further to light up the entire village which still suffering from the power cut problem, village organization decided to sell smokeless chulha at Rs. 200 and solar light at Rs. 100. The VO will use the fund as revolving fund-individual members can borrow money and the repayments are again given as loans to other members.

“Every evening when the lights glow in the street of Kanpur village, the face of villagers also light up with smile.. Slowly but surely, life in our village is changing for the better”. Umang Gram Sangathan, Kanpur (Zawar)
