Village life is run by consensus — meeting under a tree, talking a lot, drinking chai. The “chicken ladies” have a chairperson and a treasurer, as do all other village committees. The school committees have a PTA, along with other local dignitaries.
Upon their request we plan to send funds soon to the village women to purchase milking goats. The milk will be for the children to drink. With the purchase of one male goat, the women will soon be able to give neighbors milking goats, and sell goat meat.
