Needs of Kalikataar and Bharta

September 13, 2011

Needs of Kalikataar and Bharta

Surya Bahadur Chepang, 73 years old is a resident of Kalikatar VDC, Ward no.6 of Makwanpur District. He has 5 sons and 2 daughters and living in a joint family. The traditional agriculture is the only means of earning for them.

The Surya has regret that he could not educate his children. His children work in nearby city as labor in a daily wage, which is often not regular. They have land but lack knowledge to best use of their lands so they depend only on traditional farming like maize etc. Lack of agricultural knowledge is a common lacking in his community so most of them are depend on daily wages.

Most of the Chepang and Tamang ( a tribal and indigenous communities) lives in Kalikataar and Bharta VDCs. These VDCs are rich in natural resources but these resources are not utilized due to lack of knowledge and resources. The communities have food insufficiency; still they have more than 3 children as they have no idea about family planning and other health concerns. The women are treated as second class citizen and they have no roles and authorities in the decision making process in and out of the family and society. The children are encouraged to help the parents and engaged in household rather than education. The community people are not aware about natural, local and government resources for their progress.

There is larger need of awareness in the area of education, health, women empowerment and community group development to bring transformation in the individuals and families.
