Despite Winter, Garden Future Is Hopeful

Garden of Peace and Hope, Afghanistan

 

It is the middle of winter; there are still cold and freezing times to come. Reza*, the gardener, protected all fountains and pool wells with plastic. He also cut the flowers to be ready for spring. Security issues determined by the Ministry of Arts & Culture currently prevent us from hosting an exhibition.

Health Lessons and Booklets Help Villagers

Women’s Empowerment Centre–East, Afghanistan

 

Winter is a good time for the students to come to English class and Health lessons. The students have little free time in the summer because they have school. About 17 new girls have joined our programme this winter. These girls are from the villages around the Women’s Empowerment Centre (WEC). They are eager to learn at the Centre.

Christmas Celebration Leads to Expansion

North Thailand TCD Expansion, Thailand

 

In December, some of the villages of the Baan Pongsa Cluster take time off to celebrate Christmas. Members of our GHNI Southeast Asia team were invited to go up the mountain to celebrate with these community members. Everyone gathered together some money and purchased a few pigs and chickens to eat for a party. Impromptu soccer games and English lessons also sprung up amidst the celebrations.

Improving Women’s Health

DG Village*, Nepal

 

I would like to highlight some of the important work that has been done in DG Village this quarter. We continued our work even during the COVID-19 pandemic. We carried out important things based on Women’s Health this quarter. It was not easy to work during this time as everyone was afraid of the coronavirus. It was really hard to visit villagers in a large group, so we met in smaller groups and have been able to do the activities.

Priority Given to Teaching Women

KW Village*, Nepal

 

This quarter, we did many kinds of Transformational Community Development (TCD) activities in KW Village. I had a chance to spend more time with the village people visiting their homes and teaching them TCD. We suffered a lot from COVID-19. There was a lot of fear and many lost their lives and had many challenges. Even if people got the coronavirus, they had to be ready to fight it. There was no treatment available at all.

Compassionate Rice Distribution Increases Respect

MH Village*, Myanmar

 

The village has initiated a rehabilitation plan after a couple years of conflict in the area. 

 

This quarter, I would like to highlight the progress of the Sanitation Project, Relief, and Rehabilitation Plan in the village. Although the situation is still challenging for the village leaders to continue to engage in Transformational Community (TCD) works, they have done a fantastic and important job until the end of this year.
