Using New Dish Racks

Koubah Bingo, Burkina Faso

 

Our Transformational Community Development (TCD) workers, Fatima and Mainasara, hit the ground running this new year with TCD work. Mainasara engaged some women of the Koubah community to discuss home-keeping from a man’s perspective and the expectation of men as family heads. He also reiterated the need to keep using the dish racks that were constructed.

Cessation of Conflict

Attir Village, Kenya

 

“No matter how much you advise your child, he/she will end up doing what you do”, said Peter. The village had declined due to poverty and clashes of violence. The only thing that the children saw from their elders around the village were not books but guns being carried around, and that became the order of the day. Peter testifies that today children no longer carry toy guns around the village but instead small bags and books to and from school.

Gem Village, Kenya

 

It’s normal in most of the rural areas for many villagers to get sick during a heavy rainy season. Respiratory infection, diarrhoea and malaria are the most commonly reported maladies in local villages.

 

Attir Village is not an exception, as many young children and women suffered this long rainy season and a few serious cases were taken to Isiolo General Referral Hospital.

Profitable Harvest on the Way!

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia

 

It’s been a very good rainy season in Didi Hara Village. This brought great happiness in the community, as most of the community is engaged in raising animals. If they miss one rainy season, they will lose everything. This year was great for them.
