The village is well connected in terms of communication but people are very backwards educationally, economically and socially, most of the people are living their life in Below Poverty Line. The Anjodi village is a fully tribal village people are uneducated and very poor. In the village we listed out the Beneficiaries, mainly our target people are the old man and woman those are dependent also listed out the widow, physically handicapped and mentally challenged people to distribute Blanket.
In this village, we also find out many poor but intelligent students, most are very much interested to know about Dr.B.R.Ambedkar and Buddhist path, we listed out the beneficiaries students for distributing Educational kits ( Two Notebooks, One Geometry box, Wordbook, Tens Chart Book, One Pen and Odia Varnabodh Book).
One of a big challenge for us to distribute the Blanket and Edu Kit to such a huge number of beneficiaries. We manage it with the help of local volunteer, we make a big team for distribution. While distributing we find out needier students and we haven’t kit but one of our volunteer Name Subash Bibhar donate 50 set (which we are not including in our total beneficiaries) of Notebook, pen and pencil, which is more helpful to us for smooth work and we able to reach more needy students.

Outcome or Remarks:
All the beneficiaries informed about Nagaloka, Babasaheb and Nagaloka Relief Work by Jagamohan and Biswambar Kanta. after getting blanket all are happy and seems joyful.
There are more needy people in all three villages so we talk with them about our difficulty and insufficient fund, in coming days if we get more fund from our kind donors then we can try to come again and help them. Students are very happy after getting Edu. KIT. Most of the students want to learn in Nagaloka as well want to know more about our work and Babasaheb.
