Cyclone Solutions

A Binodpur village lady standing in front of a newly-built well.

This quarter, I am continuing Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons on safe water for drinking and the use of herbal remedies to control blood sugar and blood pressure. I also gave 12 lessons on the hygienic way of using the toilet and bathroom. One family has built a bathroom and toilet after these lessons on awareness.

One extra initiative I have taken is with the Binodpur committee. To protect our environment and overcome power outages, we have decided to use small solar systems. Our village is in a cyclone-prone area, and after the cyclones, it takes almost a week to get electricity back. The small solar system can charge mobile phones and flashlights, and through this system, people can use three, nine-watt light bulbs. Today, we have purchased 17 systems, and next week we are going to hand them out. We are also continuing the computer tutoring center.

Next quarter, we plan to focus on Income Generation and TCD training on Gangasagar Island, along with continuing our present activities.

Transformational Community Development (TCD) Update


Nine families are using clean and safe water for cooking and using a water filter after the awareness training.


One of our committees is focused on food. Members have started kitchen and flower gardening.


People are taking ownership. They are working on cleanliness which contributes to health.


Students are improving, they are getting good grades. Parents are giving good feedback. We have a committee focused on tutoring and the computer center.

Thank you!
