Life on embankments..



Kosi still hangs around here

Country boats made of Banana trunks ..kids hav transport.
Frail frame of shelter n occupant on embankment   

Kosi still flows around , but the bite is gone..at least near this

embankment. More than a thousand families live here now,

and every passing day..a sort of village is developing out here.

On way to camp

You have to carry supplies through to these camps..and its a 4 km hike

to the other end…its was almost impossible to get anything on the far

end as we were almost mobbed

carrying the supplies through.

The best option was to go early in the morning and start from the other

end.

These are schools that have been started at the embankment are really

doing very well..and we plan to provide sustained help to them till

 they are shifted to a permanent place.

Abhay & Guneshwar, both from DA-IICT,Gandhinagar,Gujrat,

volunteered to work with us..traveling all the way down from

Gandhinagar and immediately starting work

on these camps non stop for the last five days. Its been incredibly

pleasurable and inspiring to have them here..and as they leave us..we

are more

determined to carry on the education centers started, funded and

inspired by them.
