Solid Waste Management
Mizoram is amongst the cleanest States in India, and Aizawl city was ranked 41 amongst Indian cities in the recently released Swatchh Bharat Ranking. To take the movement forward & instill the same feeling amongst the residents of Khawlailung & Chhiahtlang, trucks were bought out of CSR funds for safe & environmentally sustainable disposal of solid waste generated in the village(s). The village council(s) through their leased use (on commercial basis) can utilize the same trucks in spare hours for revenue generation.

A UNESCO report titled ‘our creative diversity’, talks about the haves & have nots created by limited digital penetration, it further advocates that the future belongs to those who are digitally literate. Keeping this in mind, a laptops & projector along with educational aid was provided to government high school located in the village so that children are exposed to digital learning at early stages of their lives.

Agriculture & allied activities characterize the livelihood landscape of Khawlailung. A pilot was initiated with 10 families using United Nations’ ‘Sustainable Livelihood Approach’ framework as the guiding principle. The aim of the initiative is to increase capabilities & assets while reducing the shocks emanating from natural disasters & climate change. For the same, seed capital was provided to the selected households and training imparted for them. Regular handholding support has been extended by DRDA so that the people can maximize the returns and escape the vicious cycle of poverty once & for all.

Mizoram is amongst the pioneers in the field of gender equity, Mizo people realized very early that it’s impossible to fly & achieve great heights on a single wing. But still, a minuscule minority of a few outliers does exist; to address the same workshops were conducted on:
Rights & legal entitlements of women
Health & education
These workshops were aimed at spreading awareness about the entitlements of women. Further, effort are being made to extend counseling & legal support to individuals through periodic visits to the village
