Fixing the Village with Science

Along with our initiatives, we participate in active research by going house to house and conducting surveys during each visit to Naga Valadiya. These surveys help to inform us about the current circumstances of the villagers, regarding health, education, resources, etc. Performing research every time we go to our village may seem a little repetitive; however, each round provides us with new details that informs our future initiatives. Research plays an integral role in shaping these initiatives due to the fact that it allows for us to address the concerns of the villagers, as well as, develop a sense for the underlying issues at hand. Conducting these surveys also plays a role in shaping our bond with the villagers because each interaction allows us to get to know them better, as well as them to know us.
