Savda Ghevra

I made my first field visit to Savda Ghevra and one of the local NGOs called CURE had set up an informal chat with a dozen youth. The photos below are taken from outside their small house come office in which 12 of us squeezed onto the floor. They were all expecting wonderful advice from me on Disaster Management – not quite sure who they thought I was but we had a great 1.5hr chat and discussion on youth leadership and the (disaster) risks of living in Savda. The well provides water for washing clothes and washing but is not suitable for drinking. The drains were blocked with rubbish and the stagnant water was frightening pink hue. Electricity is available for every house and even the bamboo and mat shacks have a meter.
