Kavita Gothwal: Awaniya Panchayat of Sanganer, Jaipur, Rajasthan

The women in my village never went to the Panchayat meetings. First tiem I came to know about the panchayats and it's working was when we went for a SIDART seminar to the panchayat. The developmental issues such as sanitation in the village were never discussed by the women. But now, when women see me going to these meetings, they express their interest of joining me as they think we are also capable.

Before such meetings the women hardly came together.But now they do come together in seminars and Panchayat sessions on the 20th and 5th of every month.

Girls are now sent to distant schools by their parents. Women and the girls can walk out alone by themselves.I also go as a village volunteer to Jaipur and other places with SIDART team.

However, the concerns of AWC still remains. Neither are the nutritional requirements fulfilled, nor are the children getting their education. All the other benefits of AWC were also not reaching us. Thus, the efforts of SIDART delve into these issues as well.

Becoming a village volunteer has definitely changed me. Since the time, I have associated myself with SIDART, I plan and conduct meetings regarding sanitation and cleanliness standards in my village on every Sunday. Besides this, I ask the women to not allow the children to wear dirty clothes and thereby protect them from getting diseased. Additionally, the women should make sure to maintain cleanliness in and around their houses. Also, the women should take care of their personal hygiene by washing hands with soaps especially when they provide food etc. to their domestic animals.  I want to work for the progress of my village.

I aspire to become a teacher. I currently walk alone to my school which is 6 kms away from my house. I try my level best to help people in need. This all has been possible due to the efforts of SIDART. I want to continue being a village volunteer so that I work for the development of the village. I have seen the efforts of the organization have been fruitful. Now the village has dust bins at various locations, people are becoming more and more aware of the need for sanitation.

SIDART has helped in raising awareness among the women. They are all starting to accept the responsibility of the village development. There is continued action in the village to maintain cleanliness and satisfactory sanitation levels. Besides the village, I myself have become a confident individual. I try to publicize the information gained from the seminars in my village as well.

Most importantly, women have started attending Panchayat meetings. We all are now aware of the dates of the Panchayat meetings and working too.. I also make sure that I attend the Panchayat meetings in my village.
