Working at the grass roots: An Anugyalaya (DDSSS) workshop on disaster risk with panchayat level people in Kalimpong (22Aug2023)

Generating awareness on disaster risk especially with rural people has always been our forte and yesterday we had the opportunity to talk with 70 odd people mainly from Sindebong and Bhalukhop bustee (village) areas. 

Among them were many of the newly elected gram panchayat members, members of the samaj (community), ASHA workers and SHG heads of the 2 villages.
I had shared the 3 hour event with Ms Kaveri Subba, BDMO ( Block Disaster Management Officer) of Kalimpong Block -1 (seated with me in front) and the workshop was moderated and organized by Ms Aachal Tamang (extreme left), member of both SaveTheHills and Anugyglaya DDSSS.
