It has been more than a week after we all parted our ways from C4C Vietnam- Living Bio-Beds Training at Bavi. Thank you Paul for the efforts to keep us updated with Miradi , small grants. Nice to hear from Francis, David and other friends too.
I am back to full life of Chizami, catching up with backlog work of two weeks and sharing about my Vietnam experience with friends, home people and colleagues here. Got an opportunity to take a session on Women’s Movement & Leadership for 14 Young Women Leaders in Kohima on Aug 22nd. The other important programme was a Discussion on Indigenous Food & Farming System: Challenges and Opportunities on August 25th at NEN Resource Centre. 67 community leaders from 6 villages under Chizami Range Puplic Organization ( CRPO) participated. While speaking on the theme, I shared a little bit on my experience of C4C Vietnam and the CCS initiative to promote Living Bio-Beds in Hong Ha community to bring about multiple securities. I could not share much in detail because the discussion was directed more on land based livelihood practices & challenges, protecting the commons (Forest, Land, Seeds, and traditional knowledge systems) and finding together a collective sustainable pathways….towards Community Well-Being.
