Sustainable Income Generation Project

Income Generation Project Progress in Daping Village of Yingjing County

On 29th Jun 2017, DORS carried out an Income Generation Training in Daping Village of Yingjing County. 42 villagers participated in this training, which covered the SWOT analyse, how to find out a suitable income micro project according to their existing resource and ability, how to sovle problems and reduce risks and so on.Participants who applied for project fund and passed the selection procedure will receive a ceiling of 5000RMB from DORS.

On 12th July, an evaluation team with Village party branch secretaries and 3 staff from DORS had decided  that priority for funding will be given to projects which come up with less risks and increasing household income and women participation. The first batch of 24 households who met the criteria will receive the fund. Among 7 households raise pig and 17 households raise chicken. The rest households will adjust their application content and participate in the next evaluation.

Project Progress in Tazishan village of Yingjing County

On 5th June 2017, the project beneficiaries signed the grant project agreement of  sow raising with DORS staff. Each family received a ceiling of 5000 RMB for the project, which was mainly for sow purchasing and pigpen construction. Villagers and DORS staff together have bought the breeding sows  on the same day and kept in the old pigpen, which was not well constructed and not very good for sow growing. Villagers will build new pigpen when they are back from town in October. Villagers would buy some corn and look for pigweed for sows as they are lack of maize. Two sows have pregnant after 1 month’ raising.

On 12th July, Guoyumei and project staff from DORS visited the deputy manager  Ms. Yangmei and had a discussion on raising chicken in the tea garden issue. As the tea garden is owned by the Tashan Tea factory, villagers who wanted to raise chicken should have the factory’s approval. We had discussed this issue in last July when the demonstration project first launched in the tea garden, we now visited the factory again as we wanted to expand the raising chicken scale in the tea garden. Ms. Yang worried about that the tea quality may be affected by the raising chicken in the tea garden, she suggested that the chicken house should build according to the environment requirement if villagers want to raise chicken in the tea garden, but it would be better if villagers can raise chicken in the forest. DORS will work with local villagers to find out a better chicken pen design to meet the requirement.

On 11th August, we held a meeting in Tazishan village to select the project beneficiaries. The selection committee of 6 members are from Minjian township, Jianle village party secretaries and DORS. Due to current environmental protection activities carrying out by government, we had decided to slow down the project progress and only 6 households were selected to participate in the animal husbandry project.  We will fully  take the environmental issue into consideration and conduct all protection measurement before starting  the animal husbandry project.

Income Generation Project Launched in Pianma Township

In July,  DORS held an income generation project commencement garden party in Daying Village of Pianma Yi township. The aim of the Income generation project was to promote the funtioning of the township association to expand local agricultural produces selling channels so that to increase villagers' income. More women also could participate in the communities social affairs through this project. There were over 200 people from Poverty Alleviation & Immigration Bureu(PAIB) of Hanyuan and Xide County, Pianma Township government, Siguojue and Machang Villages of Xide County, 6 villages from Hanyuan county, and associations attending this garden party. Mr. Zhang Guoping from PAIB of Hanyuan and Mr. Jiajuewuga (Yi) from PAIB of Xide, Mr. Puguoyuan (the head of Pianma Township) gave speeches in the garden party. All people expecially women and children were very happy to join in all games. With the Yi song sang by Yi young men, grils were dancing in the open space.

After the garden party, DORS invited 12 associations and 6 village leaders from Pianma township to discuss how to promote the Walnut selling to increase villgers' income.

Baseline studies for Pianma Township of Hanyuan County and Xide County

With the assistance of Ms. Xiao from rural development college of Southwest University, DORS finished the Pianma Township association situation investigation in July. Ms. Xiao drew up a community ability training frame work and provided some suggestion for the coming work for DORS. DORS staff also finished the household income resources and component investigation in Pianma Township, which will be the baseline for project final evaluation after 3 years.

DORS finished 2 villages’ baseline study in Xide County as well in June, which gave us a picture of the villages’ nature resources, agricultural activities calendar, energy consumption, environment situation, current projects, villagers’ ability and the constrict, income resources and expenditure and their expectation for DORS’ project and so on.  Although the cost to work in Liangshan prefecture is much higher than in other areas, the poverty issues and villagers’ need of project in this area are the most serious in Sichuan. This is the meaningful for DORS coming back to work in Liangshan Prefecture since we finished Ganluo county projects years ago.
