Convergence with MGNREGA: Livestock Management

Smt. Rajeshwari Devi and her husband of Village Gwaad were totally depended on their cows for the entire earning of their family. The family was facing hardship as the cows were not of good breed and despite of all the hard work, it was difficult to make end of all needs. Then one day, Rajeshwari met team members of Jakeshwar Sikshan Sansthan (JSS), a local NGO supported by Himmotthan Society. The team suggested Rajeshwari to participate in Panchayat meeting and to put a proposal of refurbishment of cow shelter along with improved breed of cows. The proposal was accepted and in the year 2014-15, the refurbishment work of cow shelter started in the guidance of Himmotthan Society under MGNREGA scheme. The scheme provided a support of Rs. 39400 for the work of cow shelter and in addition to this Himmotthan supported Rajeshwari Devi in getting a low interest loan of Rs. 40000 to buy improved breed of cows.

The renovation of shelter included pakka floor, urine tank, compost pit and fodder space. On one hand Ms. Rajeshwari got wages for the renovation work done in cow shelter and on the other she started getting around Rs 3500 per month by selling 4 to 5 liters of milk daily. Gradually Ms. Rajeshwari has paid off a loan of Rs. 24000 and with a constant income the rest will be paid soon. The support and guidance of Himmotthan Society and JSS has not only provided a regular income but also strengthen the source of income for the entire Family.
