Getting Ahead of the Pests

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia

 

A few months ago, in Dida Hara Village, the irrigation field was affected by pests and they lost almost three hectares of vegetables and fruit trees. Thankfully, the government agriculture office has provided pesticide and other technical support. In the future, if this kind of problem happens, they will hopefully be able to better protect the irrigation field.

 

Expanding Proven Success

In Harowayo Village, the Transformational Community Development (TCD) groups have been working hard. A few months ago, the government agriculture office visited our irrigation project. They were amazed by our TCD work and were not expecting what we’ve accomplished.

 

Happy to Be Together

Before he joined the Transformational Community Development (TCD) groups, he had left his family back home to search for jobs in other towns. Sometimes he didn’t return home for more than a year. If he did not make enough money, he did not go back home.

 

A Widow’s Growing Hope

Kito Village, Ethiopia

 

Fetiya from Kito Village is 28 years old and has one child. Sadly, she was widowed two years ago when her husband passed away. Fetiya was entirely dependent on her husband’s income, and after he died, life was very difficult for her. She received some support from the government’s “safety-net” program. It was not enough for Fetiya’s family’s survival, so her neighbors frequently supported her.
