Let them call it a ‘small city of Odisha.’ But our contributions are bigger than others, Rourkela city’s achievements are setting examples for millions across India. Kids, younger, older, everyone has a task to do here in steel city on how to make it shinier.
And now even a community of people affected by Leprosy has done something which is worth a million share.
In the year 2018, the leprosy community people had started growing mushrooms and after 1 year the situation is something different, that no one has ever thought!
Their hard work and their commitment to contribute has done something amazing and now they have doubled their profits by selling vermicompost. And most of te mushroom-growing is done by self-help groups formed by the women.
These people had to beg for alms to be able to secure a meal.
However, a novel initiative by some social workers and the Rourkela Mahanagar Nigam changed the lives of these leprosy patients in Rourkela.
And now they have carved a place for themselves among the townspeople.
