PayBito’s Game-Changing Initiative to Tackle Transportation Challenges in the Sundarbans
In today’s world, hunger and poverty remain significant challenges affecting millions worldwide. PayBito has launched its “Brokering World Hunger Away,” which aims to alleviate the global food crisis. As part of this campaign, PayBito recently ventured into the Sundarbans, a region that has been hit hard by hunger and poverty, to understand the challenges faced by the local community.
“During our visit, we found that transportation issues were one of the major obstacles preventing the Sundarban villagers from accessing food and other essential supplies.”

This discovery has brought to light the critical role transportation plays in supply chain management and the urgent need for innovative solutions to address this issue in Sundarbans and other similar regions.
Connecting the Unconnected: Addressing Transportation Challenges in the Sundarbans
“The three main occupations of villagers in Sundarbans are farming, fishing, and honey collection. However, with the effects of climate change, it has become challenging for us to travel to distant cities and sell our products. The only way to travel is by boat, and we have to depend on high tides for the boats to work. In such an atmosphere, survival is a huge challenge.”
- Sadhon Sardar (a honey collector in Sundarbans)
Sundarbans’ lack of infrastructure in the region has made it challenging for farmers, fishermen, and honey collectors to sell their goods in distant cities. This lack of connectivity has resulted in reduced incomes for the locals and contributed to food insecurity in the region. With no roads or bridges connecting the islands, boats are the only means of transportation, making it difficult for them to access essential services and goods. The absence of reliable medical facilities and emergency services is also a major concern for the villagers.
Living in the Sundarbans also means being cut off from the amenities of modern life that most city dwellers take for granted. Access to electricity, clean water, and sanitation is limited, leaving the villagers vulnerable to diseases and infections. Education and employment opportunities are also scarce, forcing many young people to migrate to cities in search of better prospects.
The Impact of Transportation Issues on Sundarbans Villagers: An Inside Look
“Collecting honey from the core areas of the forest is risky. We are always in fear of tigers attacking us. I occasionally go fishing with my brothers. However, the major problem is we have to take them to the nearest cities to sell them. There are no bridges or proper transportation facilities. We have no trucks or cars, hence we sell them to the nearest markets at low prices, as we cannot directly reach the consumers.”
- Sadhon Sardar (in an interview with PayBito)
Sadhon, in an interview with PayBito, describes the challenges they face in their day-to-day lives. He is a honey collector who visits the core areas of the forest where they have to face the risk of tiger attacks while collecting honey. Due to the financial crisis, Sadhon also occasionally go fishing with their brothers. However, the main challenge they face is selling their products, due to the lack of transportation facilities or bridges nearby. As a result, they have to sell their products at a lower price in the nearest markets, as they cannot directly reach the consumers. This lack of infrastructure and support makes it difficult for them to earn a fair price for their hard work and hinders their ability to improve their livelihood.
“Majority of our honey is sold to the tourists who come to visit Sundarbans. However, due to frequent cyclones, and floods, often honey is washed away. During Amphan, I made a huge loss, as I lost my home, along with honey, and other necessary items.”
Most of Sadhon’s honey is sold to tourists who visit the area. However, living in the Sundarbans also comes with its challenges. Frequent cyclones and floods often cause huge damage, and people lose their hard-earned honey to these natural disasters. During the cyclone Amphan, Sadhon suffered a huge loss as his home, along with his honey and other necessary items, was washed away. This loss had a significant impact on his livelihood, as it affected his ability to earn a living and support himself and his family. Despite these challenges, Sadhon continues to persevere and work hard, facing the unpredictable nature of living in the Sundarbans.
