"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

JSS initiative is to support a community initiative for public transport connecting villages in the area especially those not on the roadside. Timely access to medical care is essential in saving many lives including during delivery time.

 
 

  Achievements

 

 

Already within three months of its starting, the vehicle was being overused, and overbooked. This only shows the urgent and huge need for cheap and available transportation. This vehicle is also run as an emergency service ambulance, and gets 20 - 25 calls per month. It is used not only for health but also for other human needs for which it is requested and use cannot be refused: accessing markets, education, visiting government offices, etc.

 

  Goals

 

 

To save lives during delivery and other emergency medical conditions, connect far flung villages not easily accessible by public transport. To advocate the idea and enable the state to resume public transport in the area.
