Organized together with Green Volunteers for Green Future (GV4GF) since 2012 (1st time in this place). GV4GF is a NGO to promote voluntary service, environmental protection and improve rural life. Project area is a based on paddy farming and in off season, most of farmers work as unskilled labours. Project area is belonging to dry zone so they experienced the harshness of the life. Very few people were moving to outside of the village and others are stay around the village. Partner organization has been working since 2002. People are very shy and backward because of their lifestyle and lack of communication skills.

In the 2nd week, we will do various community work such as cultural exchange programs with villagers including youths, activities with children and work and assist to self help group memberaeuros activities.
