Thanks to the support of a local community group, supported by CAFOD, Bikash has constructed a bird house for 26 pairs of breeding pigeons. Bikash hopes to earn a substantial income for his family of around £30 to £40 a month from his business. His dream is for his two sons to receive a full education.
