The village of Gharbhanga Jenasahi in Kendrapara district of Odisha recently saw how the joint efforts of the resident families towards community cleaning and livelihood projects could bring about a stable livelihood option to the locals. Villagers have been facing severe water-related problems and with no source of income, young boys are forced to search for a livelihood elsewhere. Under Goonj’s ‘Vaapsi’ initiative, the local community decided to restart bamboo handicraft making and have also opted for other livelihood options like tailoring, plumbing and carpet weaving. As soon as the items (mainly bamboo baskets) are procured by Goonj, they will be added to Goonj’s relief kits.
