November 2005; Shyam Prasad Bhattarai, a participant of MEDEP in Treveni program location in Nawalparsi district says "I think if we do everything seriously and with perseverance, it will yield. I along with my wife work 16 hours a day." Despite having passed his School Leaving Certificate examination (grade ten) some fifteen years ago he did not have the income or employment opportunities in his village then. Being the eldest sibling in a family of 13 members, Shyam had no alternative but to leave for India in search for work. He returned home a year ago but with no money in his hand and once again unemployed. He came home as he had gone but he had the experience, skills and the recipe to make a success by playing with milk.
