Crops add infinite vitality to each other
接着，北大师生等青年、媒体代表又乘车去探访”Mandradhunga”村的”Gyanu Rai”（女）带领的纺织小组部分成员。Gyanu Rai既是当地的族长，也是纺织小组的负责人。该纺织小组共68人，其中66名女性，2名男性（但并不参与生产活动），是9个合作小组中人数最多的一个。
Then, the delegation from Peking University visited the members of the textile group led by Gyanu Rai (female) of Mandradhunga village. Gyanu Rai is the head of the local patriarch and textile group. The textile group has 68 members, of which there are 66 women, 2 men (but not involved in production activities). It is the largest one in nine cooperating groups.
For the visit of the delegation , the local villagers were both excited and slightly shy. Members of the delegation gave some nougat, biscuits and other snacks to local children. The villagers not only warmly welcomed the team members， asking them to sit down to rest, also shared a variety of cold drinks. Sitting on the roadside, exposing to sufficient sunshine and sand storm, team members and children were very happy to enjoy the cold drinks.
For two years after the earthquake, they participated in the cooperation group training and learned to cut, sew, and make skirts, saris and so on. Gyanu Rai said happily to us: “The Local villagers are very fond of our costumes and eager to buy from us, so our clothing store is going to open next month. “
Ravindra Das, a graduate student specializing in sociology at Kathmandu University, argues that Nepal is an agriculture-dominated country where the income will remain low if it does not master new technology and work in the traditional way. But through community training, the villagers can handle the new production technology, which contributes to the increasing income and great improvement of life standard.
Before the NGOs took the systematic action, the income of local family was very unstable, always like “supplied food by the god “, most of the family survived by the income made from husband in military or working outside . After the help of Amity Founction, the income of the local family has doubled or even tripled.
The delegation went to the field to learn about the situation of livestock-feeding, tomato and eggplant planting, etc. Hearing the local people called okra as “Lady Figure” (lady posture), everyone was dramatically amused.
Because of the lack of irrigation water , the local vegetables were in apparent water shortages. With help of Amity Foundation, the villagers built a reservoir on height, pumping water from the river to the reservoir, to solve this problem.
