Shatbaria Ghat:

A lower-income community of Shatbaria, in Jhenaidah, was facing problem due to a broken ghat. The dwellers, could not use the river adjacent to it and was dumping their kitchen waste in the river. For that, a small workshop was arranged to gather all the community people and they were asked to build a model of their dream ghat.  Seeing their aspiration, the group of architects designed a buildable model of the ghat.
