Cluster Impact

Naki Ouest Village, Togo

 

From Blamonga Togo, there is cluster impact spreading across the region of Naki Ouest. Communities like Batemone are asking for transformation. Seyi has visited the community and help and hope is coming to Batemone.

 

Thank you!

Health Awareness Improves Quality of Life

Gem Village, Kenya

 

Mama Nakuro has been a resident of Gem Village for over 20 years. She lived in a small house with her family of nine children. Some have married and four are still teenagers. The small house served as a bedroom, sitting room, dining room, bathroom, and kitchen, as well. Not only that, it even served as home for their small chicken and two goats.

Quenching Water Within Reach

Attir Village, Kenya

 

The drilling of a bore hole in Attir Village with the help of GHNI has borne much fruit. After the villagers cried out that water was a big problem to them, we took the initiative and networked with other organisations that were willing and had the capacity to help the Attir community. Water was drilled and the problem came to an end. Fruits were seen and villagers started farming; thus, one factor of their dependency came to an end because the Attir community was no longer resigned to a pastoral lifestyle.           

 

Determined to Learn and Excel

Isiolo Empowerment Centre, Kenya

 

“I was accepted into the GHNI sewing class when I was about to give up on my life,” Jane said. “I can now say I will have a happy life because of what I experienced in my sewing class. I want to thank my teacher Mr. Stephen. Even though I’m not good at reading and writing, he still accepted me. Thank you for teaching me. My dream is to have a dressmaking shop and a canteen for my future work.”

Overcoming Fear

Ezbit el Amir Village, Egypt

 

We gave a lesson about acts of magic and evil deeds that we encounter in our everyday life. One of the ladies said that one of her neighbours used to do magic and evil deeds on her. She would find those things on her doorstep and because of that she would experience trouble. After attending the lesson, she learnt not to be afraid of these things and to not be afraid when she finds those things on her doorstep.

High Attendance to TCD Classes

We opened a Children’s Development Programme in a new village called Al Bayadia, where the majority of the people are from poor families. We started teaching children Transformational Community Development (TCD),  and more than 35 children joined the class.

Standing Up to Bullies

Women of Helwan

         

We gave lessons about how to understand each other and jealousy. We also had a field trip for the ladies, during which Dr. Hadeel talked about different kinds of abuse and sexual harassment. The ladies were very responsive.

Beginning Construction of the School Building

Doko Village, Cote d’Ivoire

 

As you know, with support from GHNI to the village, bricks were made. Now our next focus is to begin the school building. The committee is discussing the details about the land to accommodate the school building.

 

Meanwhile, eleven of the village children travelled to the next town to attend the secondary school level examination. Ten of them passed--six girls and four boys.

 

Thank you for helping to provide steps and encouragement for the education of our children.

 
Thank you!

 

VIP Latrine is Better

Ngassa Village, Cameroon

 

We reported that our Ventilated Improved Pit (VIP) latrine caved in because the land was flooded during the last rainy season. Now, a new building has been put up. It is called the “Miracle Building” because, unlike the latrines the community is used to, this VIP latrine does not have an awful smell.
