Success Story 
Village: Jeeto Patel 
Union Council: Mir Imam Bux Talpur 
 
Villagers of Jeeto Patel village live in this village since a year and before that they were living on landlords given place. SSEWA-Pak CCDP started working in their village since 2014, when the project started working in the village, they were living under landlord’s pressure and had no awareness.  
CCDP project formed SHG/VDG groups in the village and gave them the training about the savings and record keeping, villagers of Jeeto Patel village were very enthusiastic as they picked the things so quickly and started doing savings and meetings regularly in which they discussed their issues. To enhance their capacity CCDP did different training in their village i-e WASH, Strengthening of SHG’s and VDG’s, SHG & VDG Development plan training.  

After SHG & VDG Development plan training the villagers of Jeeto Patel village made a development plan in for their village to purchase their own land, to send their children to school, to make a community hall for their village and also mentioned other works in their plan and set a timeline for achieving those goals. 

For achieving those goals, villagers did meetings together to get the best results, after meetings and dedication villagers managed to purchase their own land, now they are happy that they have their own land and are not dependent on anyone. Also their other goal was to send their children to school and to give them good education, by keeping this thing in mind villagers have started sending their children to school; now 8 village children are enrolled in Government school as they go to school happily. Jeeto Patel villagers are very happy and thankful to SSEWA-Pak CCDP team who by encouraging them and gave them awareness to think out of the box.
