On the visit we went to the SESTA office at Borbari, Chirang. There the SESSTA team Executives Grace and Satyajit had explained to us what the areas they were working on based on the needs of the rural community. Thereafter, they took us to the Sikajhora and Bishnupur Village to meet the Self Help Group Members who were working on rearing the livestock such as Goat, Piggery and Poultry. They also explained on maintaining orchards for Assam Lemon and Arecanut Cultivation. After the discussion, the team visited each of the components and were suggested to do it in their area of work. It was a fruitful experience for the team.
