Working in the East Singhbhum district, Jharkhand, when our team mobilized the villagers of Kalajharna, they decided to work on making a bridge, to lessen their travel distance by about 4-6 km, between Panchadih and Barudih. Situated inside the forest area, the village is home to around 300 people, who do small-scale farming and collection of forest products. Each of the participant families worked very hard to make the bridge, while also contributing bamboo, khutta (big wooden pole) and screws towards the making of the bridge. Moreover, they also repaired a 1.5 km stretch of road that connected them to the main road. Goonj rewarded their efforts with Rahat Relief Kits.
