Taking Ownership of Development

*DG Village, Nepal

 

During this quarter, I've been following up by teaching lessons on health, hygiene, and disease prevention to the children’s and women’s groups. The community responded saying that Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons are so simple but very necessary and powerful tools for community development.

In December, the goat-hosting families are preparing for the winter and covering the goats’ houses to protect them from the rain and the cold weather. Meanwhile, they also will take the goats to have their vaccinations.

Changing Old Perceptions

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This past quarter, villagers in Dhoker Jhara have been working hard on income generation.  Among them, Mohit, started a men’s hair salon. He had been afraid to run his own salon because people used to say that tribal villagers are not allowed to cut hair. Only some castes could cut hair. After education, villagers now understand that anyone may open a salon. By seeing Mohit’s example, other villagers were encouraged to increase their income generation.

Breaking Barriers to Change

Kharibari Village, India

 

Last quarter, we pursued practical work in Kharibari Village. We had already installed one street light in the middle of the village and were getting ready for another one, but one panchayat member suggested we approach the local MLA for solar lights instead. So, one fine evening, the villagers got together to write an application for solar lights, along with a culvert for the village.
