Planting a Garden to Diversify Food Production

North Thailand TCD Expansion, Thailand

 

In September, GHNI staff visited two villages with our local Person of Peace. In the first village, we assisted partner organisations with dental hygiene training and distribution of emergency food aid to families still ailing from the economic effects of the coronavirus.

Special Tastes from Their Cultures

Vocational Training Programme, Jordan

 

Our Vocational Training Project (VTP) continues to help the beneficiary families through our orders of their different items which carry special tastes from their cultures and home land. This helps them to generate some income which somehow helps to cover some of their expenses and financial commitments.

Warming Up to Change

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

We are working on two villages: Dhoker Jhara and Chandopani. Recently, we had a small meeting when we visited Chandopani. Initially, we were not getting a positive response, but now after some effort we met with some families who are ready to form a community and help us. Some villagers helped us by meeting with the block level person as well.

Jatapara Village, India

 

Mango plantation work, which was started in August, continued into September as well. Mangoes have been planted over an area of four acres. Drains are also being cut around the area. So far three acres have been done, while the remaining acre is expected to be completed in the first week of October. New leaves have started to grow on the saplings and they grab the attention of the villagers.

Kitchen Gardens Provide Food for Families

Valley of Ali*, Afghanistan

 

As in years past, our demonstration kitchen garden looks so good, especially at the time of harvest!  It provides families and our staff with a variety of crops such as cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, etc.  in the summer and early autumn.

 

We also invite villagers to show them that it is possible to plant vegetables in their fields and give them some fresh onions and lettuce as a gift, so that we can make friends with them.
