School in one of the pilot villages. - - Pilot Village Rural Development (FFHC).. The village of Dusadj was destroyed by an earthquake in 1962. During the course of reconstruction, by volunteers of a European working group and students from Teheran University, enquires were made into the socio-economic situation of the village. On the basis of these enquires, Dusadj and three neighboring villages were chosen for a pilot experiment in rural development which, if successful, could be later applied to some 60 villages of the region. The project area is in the district of Kharagan, 170 kms. South-west of Teheran, and is financed by Trust Funds amounting to approximately $147.000 provided by FAO/Freedom from Hunger Campaign, plus a Government contribution of approximately $165.000.
