Women Addressing Issues

Upper Egypt Village Cluster, Egypt

 

Toshka is one of the largest villages of the Nubian tribe. We had a vision seminar last month and the women were so excited to start developing their village. They shared the main problems that face them in the community, issues like divorce, female genital mutilation, and unemployment. They have a desire to start women groups.

Family Boundaries

Ezbit el Amir Village, Egypt

 

We gave a lesson about boundaries in relationships and between each family. Berenike said that she lives in a house where all her family lives, and they used to visit each other with no boundaries. After awhile, problems appeared as they were very involved in her private life in a scary way.

Babajide shared with us that his mother had died of an electric shock. She had been doing the laundry and, while her hands were wet, she held the cord of the washing machine. Unfortunately, the cord was cut open so she was shocked and died.

Berenike shared with us that her friend lied to her, denying taking her pen, so ​Berenike also took her friend's pen behind her back. When the friend asked about the pen, Berenike said that she didn't know where it was.

Building Projects Nearing Completion

Grain Mill Will Improve Village Economy

Ngassa, Cameroon

 

Transformation is spreading from Ngassa to other parts of Cameroon. A milling machine was recently purchased as a seed project for Douvangar Village. The cost of the milling machine will be repaid by the community. Our Transformational Community Development (TCD) workers will facilitate setting up committees that will oversee this seed project.

Life-Giving Water Returns

Nkar, Cameroon

 

The community of Nkar has been living harmoniously, looking for solutions to their daily life requirements--especially clean water. In the dry season, the situation is extremely difficult as people trek over kilometres to search for the precious liquid in valley springs and puddles. This has been the burden of women and children, preventing them from actively participating in other economic ventures.

Preschoolers Begin Their Education

Koubah Bingo, Burkina Faso

 

Fatima, our Transformational Community Development (TCD) worker, engaged children between the ages of 3 and 4 with some literacy activities in Koubah Bingo in November. For most of the children, this was the first time they experienced formal education, which is a sure way to encourage transformation.

 

Thank you!
