Pacholi Mela held

Ulubari Mahila Sak Pacholi Bebahayi Sanstha with the support of Society for Social Transformation and Environment Protection (sSTEP) organized day-long vegetable fair on June 30 at B. K. Kakoti Road, Ulubari.  The fair was first of its kind in Guwahati.  sSTEP is working with indigenous women vegetable vendors for last few years.  Indigenous women are supplying home grown organic vegetables through temporary huts and roadside markets. Many a times, these indigenous women have to face the atrocities of authorities by way of terming encroachers who sits illegally to sell their produce. The fair was well taken by buyers.  The fair boost up the morale of indigenous women and continue their services in the trying circumstances.  The authority should look into the rights and should create necessary infrastructure.   OXFAM distributed umbrellas among the vendors.
