Anganwadi centre in Khaskoti, Block Jaunpur, Dist.
Tehri was not running effectively as the woman
incharge stayed in a distant place. The SHG women
along with others took her to task as a result of which
she started commuting to the centre everyday. The
centre runs well now.
The women played a major role in improving the
sanitation condition of the village by getting toilets
constructed. Previously the money for such work was
not utilized, but now the women approached the
Pradhan and got them constructed wherever needed.
In village Sendul, Block Jaunpur, Dist. Tehri, the
unavailability of ration was making the living for people
very difficult. The women conducted a meeting and
decided to send a written declaration to the District
Magistrate.
This step was appreciated and acknowledged and the
concerned retailer of the ration shop was removed by
the D.M. As of now, proper ration is available on time in
the village
