Locals in Distributed Masks

Hojagi Cluster Villages, Tajikistan

 

This month was very fruitful for us. We completed two water projects: one in Hamadoni and one in the Pyanj area. We distributed about 3,000 masks in and around Murtoch* and in the southern region to a total of 11 villages: 6 in the Murtoch area and 5 in the South area.

Bodaboda Taxi

Isiolo Empowerment Centre, Kenya

 

When Alex fled conflict back home in Gem Village seven years ago, all he had was his family and his children. Now, 34-year-old Alex is the first in his village to own a motorbike.

 

Motorbikes, popularly known as Bodabodas, are a popular means of transportation. They are considered affordable, fast, and provide a source of income to the young men.

During the month of July, I was able to visit some elders individually and discuss the need for initiating a dialogue on intertribal hostilities, natural disasters, and lack of access to economic resources at their level.

Learning Self-Sufficiency in Mawa

Mawa, Indonesia

 

Mawa is a cluster consisting of several villages of various sizes. All of the villages have various problems, ranging from income and health to education and access to water. Having successfully completed a project in one village that brought a water source into the community for the first time, the GHNI team looks to build on that momentum.

Emerging Entrepreneurs

Kharibari Village, India

 

For the last several months, I had tried to motivate villagers of Kharibari Village to start their own business. However, they were not very keen on starting a business, as it involves risks; instead, they had been relying on the most convenient source of income, which is working as a daily wage earner. But since a job may not be available every day, I hoped to help them start a small side business in order to earn good income.
