I belong to Gopal Ganj district of Bihar. In my village and in its proximity, thousands of unskilled laborer's have run out of money. Several have lost their lives. Several went out in search of some work and caught the virus. Several families have lost the basic bread winners, several families have lost both the lady and the man and several families have started begging and are very prone of die out of hunger if fortunately saved from COVID infection.
It is a heart wrenching situation. Providing them one day mean or one week's meal will not be of any help. A support of at least 3 months is needed. To meet the need, some of the professionally qualified youth, who came back to village due to COVID, have come together and are planning to create a chips making unit in the village.
The local population consumes good amount of local potato, banana, papaya chips. It need no heavy machines and the raw material is available in the personal fields of the team members.
The team is planning to provide a job of INR 300 per day to at least 100 families for next 6 months. The land, building and electricity is being taken care of by team members but initial cost is something which is being stumbling block.
