Marriage Snack Contract a Success

Jatapara Village, India

 

This month before lockdown, we discussed with the women of the group regarding the sources of income for the month of March, April and May, as selling nankeens and sev packets do not increase income quickly. In the meeting we concluded to move forward making packets of snacks for marriage and other functions of the village and neighbouring areas, as the next three to four months are the season of weddings in this area.

Farmers to Fight Malnutrition

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

 

We had a cold winter in Yakawlang this year, and even though it is springtime, the trees haven't budded, yet.  Presently, we have distributed more than 16,000 poplar cuttings! As we give the cuttings to the local farmers, we also teach them how to plant hybrid poplars. So far, 20 farmers have been trained this year.

Small Shop Making a Big Difference

*RT Village, Nepal

 

Devna lives in RT village. She and her husband live with their two children. Her life was full of struggle and sorrows because of poverty. She and her husband worked very hard, but they were still facing financial, food, clothing and other problems. At times, they would only eat once a day, at other times, they wouldn’t eat at all. Their children used to cry because of hunger, and it was a really difficult life for them.

Waiting on More Goats

Goat Loan Programme, Jordan

 

All our goats - hosting families are waiting for the newborn goats as this is the season until mid-March. After all the pregnant goats give birth, the number of goats will increase and that will enable us to move some goats to a new hosting family. This is what we are planning on and waiting to do.

Microloan Goat Mogul

The lifestyle of the Attir community is improving day by day; living standards of people have improved amazingly. This change started when GHNI began the coaching programme four years ago. After many lessons on different kinds of businesses, the goat business seems favourable for the Attir community and has brought a lot of transformation, simply because a lot of people want to venture into business without enduring too much stress.

With so many years of prolonged drought affecting the Isiolo area, the community has come to be dependent on external relief food. This phenomenon has been seen in northern Kenya for years and has affected the livelihood of the communities living in these areas.
