Leader Sets Example for Income Generation

Ramantar Village, Nepal

 

In the Jogital Cluster Village, the villagers are very poor. Their life is very painful because of no education, no income, no food, no medical facilities, etc. I taught Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons and encouraged them to start a micro business. They are very happy to have learnt about sanitation, to use safe drinking Water, and about Income Generation.

Non-Ownership of Livestock is a Challenge

Mawa, Indonesia

 

In the previous quarterly report, we mentioned surveying several other areas due to the seeming lack of interest of the Mawa community to continue the Transformational Community Development (TCD) programme. This quarter, after more discussions with the village committee and with GHNI leadership, we have decided to give Mawa one more shot, with the assessments of the other communities being stored for potential future activation.

Water Quality is Being Tested

Polewali, Indonesia

 

The community tends to be very vocal in their meetings and at times this can delay initiatives. On the other hand, we appreciate that they are active. We try to incorporate Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons and moral lessons to help create an environment for the community to discuss issues in a positive way.

Water & Income - Tea Garden Top Priorities

Tea Garden Cluster, India

 

Water is one of the five pillars of Transformational Community Development (TCD). Kharibari villagers had no potable Water and they rely heavily on the village well for everyday needs, be it cooking, cleaning, or drinking; they had no other option. We had been trying to get Public Health Engineering (PHE) water connexion for the village for quite some time. We had applied to the Concern Department in this regard but had only received lip service.

Income Sources Explored, School Re-opens

Binodpur Village, India

 

In Binodpur Village, 80% of the villagers are dependent on agriculture. Paddy rice is the main profitable crop. Due to cyclones and unusual rain patterns, many are not willing to continue agricultural work. Villagers go to the city as day-labourers. Unfortunately, after the lock-down, construction work is not going well.
