Lending Neighbours a Helping Hand

Myat Hlae – Rakhine State, Myanmar

 

In this quarter, I would like to highlight the achievements of Myat Hlae Village Wellness Committee in contribution of rice bags for the villagers, as well as their leadership to finish other toilets in the community following their commitment to the sanitation project. Moreover, the leaders played an important role in helping their neighbours, Htongbuu Village.

Progress in Spite of Obstacles

Hoja Bulbulok, Tajikistan

 

In all of our Transformational Community Development (TCD) villages here, we have the same problem – we only can work with young people from age 16 to 26. Almost all the men age 26-45 go to Russia for work to earn hard currency. In total, about 90% of the men in the villages leave.

Expanding to Full Grocery Shop

Kharibari Village, India

 

Last month, I met two members of Grassmore Tea Estate Co-operative Society and told them about Transformational Community Development (TCD). This tea garden is going through a transition phase and is often forced to close due to non payment of wages. They are interested and want to start TCD in the tea garden.

Ladies Learn Literacy in English

Women’s Empowerment Centre, Afghanistan

 

Women are coming to class daily to learn English. We decided to change the environment of the class. Last time we brought 16 different kinds of fruits and vegetables to show the students. This provided a practical opportunity to learn the names of each one!  We will continue practical lessons for the women that they can apply in their daily lives.

Self-Sustaining Measures

Jatapara Village, India

 

This month, we taught students the value of education, one of the five focusses of Transformational Community Development (TCD). Before, students only studied in school, and after school they would usually just play. At the training, the importance of self study after school was emphasised.  Now the students concentrate on studies after school, as well as play.
