TGD Vegetable Garden

Since mid January 2020 our village TGD has its own special Vegetable Garden. We have planted different seeds, including coriander, white radish, carrots, green chilli, spinach and turnip in the lawn surrounding village Water Pump House. It will ensure food self-sufficiency and food security for the inhabitants of our village Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroka (District Okara, Punjab, Pakistan).

Tap Water Comes to Our Kitchen

There is another big success and a milestone for our village NGO Anjuman-e-Falah-e-Aama (AFA). There was HAPPINESS all around, when the Water Pump House in our village opened its doors on the first day of the new year 2020. It was as if all the families were just waiting for this fresh, pure and clean drinking water facility. We are charging just one rupee per liter to cover the electricity bills and other costs. Thanks Almighty!
