In Kandgaon village, I took SALT activity of one person who earns his living by doing coloring work. Sometimes he comes to the river bank for fishing because fishing gives him break from daily routine work . When I took SALT with this man At that time, He was enjoining fishing with his friends. We discuss with him about his village he talk very frankly with me. He gave various information about the village. After that a lot was learned from him about the village. He spoke about the past and present situation in the village, in which he presented the situation of the village on gender equality. He said many Children in his village start working in adolescence, they get money in very minor age so they fall into the trap of addiction. The number is quite high in the village. This thing is very wrong so he wants this situation must be change. And it is possible because of only education.
About village his dream is that every woman in the village should have the same rights as men. And to do this, everyone in the village must change their mindset.
