Expanding Crop Selection Reaps Greater Benefits

Attir Village, Kenya

 

The Attir community is one of the communities which has really benefitted from water that was drilled in their area with GHNI’s help. Villagers did not only benefit from domestic use, but they also started involving themselves in farming activities and planting food crops. After a while, GHNI gave them the idea of planting not only food crops but also cash crops. They were taught how they can handle it until the end of season.

Sharing Favourite Cultural Foods

Vocational Training Programme, Jordan

 

We are still working with Rana, the lady from Syria, in our Vocational Training Programme. We have ordered 50 pickle jars recently to distribute to the refugees during the home visits. It’s a win-win situation because Rana will generate income and the refugees we visit will enjoy her yummy pickles.

 

Also, we ordered some Armenian pickles and sausage from Jerayer.

Showing Love, Sharing Food

Due to the current conflict in the area, many Mro communities in the hills had to flee from their villages and took shelter in Myat Hlae Village since early this year. The government has opened up a camp, and it was reported that there are 105,000 households in the camp. In this hard time, the community leaders take responsibility for caring for armed-conflict victims, regarding food, clothes, shelter, health care, and education for children, as well.
