SUCCESS STORIES

KSSS HELPED IN GETTING MY NEW RATION CARD

I am living at Sihoripura with my family. Since last five to six years I am living separate from my parents. My earning is very little as I am a labour. As my earning is too little I was unable to buy enough rations and any materials/eatable or any other things for my family. I tried my best to have my own ration card through which at least I can buy enough rations.

When women came together for water

Women of Karoli village in Kheda district have become an inspiration for other Village Development Committee members now, thanks to their determination to improve the drinking water situation in their village street. 

In 2016, help came in the form of Kaira Social Service Society, an NGO working for poor and marginalized community development issues in Anand, Kheda, Ahmedabad and Mahisagar districts who helped the women of Karoli to constitute Village Development Committee, a people’s organization for solving their community problems.

ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN THE WORDS

One major problem that came up was the quantity of kerosene that was to be provided to BPL, APL and Antodaya families. All ration shops owners were supplying kerosene according to their whims and fancies. Some shops were giving 5litres, some 6L and a maximum of 7L was being supplied.  When most families do not own gas cylinders they have to rely on kerosene for cooking. Kerosene available in markets and that too in the black markets is as high as Rs 30/- a litre ñ a price, which most families could not afford.

VOICE OF THE UNHEARD

“It’s difficult to raise your voice in village meetings when you are not a leader and not with team.” So therefore Kaira Social Service Society formed a Village Development Committee (VDC) in Kathana na Muvada village of Kathlal Taluka. Various trainings and programs were conducted in this village with the support of VDC members. The Right to Food Campaign (RTF) is “an informal network of organizations and individuals committed to the realization of the right to food in India” Starting from the village street.
