Equipping His Fellow Farmers

Sendana Village, Indonesia

In the village of Sendana, few people have the opportunity to attend the university like *Mr. A. It is during his time spent there that he understood the importance of education. Since Mr. A joined the Transformational Community Development (TCD) program, he can be regularly seen with a book about cocoa on the table or nearby. Upon gaining confidence in cocoa farming, Mr. A started to read about cocoa to the farmers who visit him.

Jatapara is a tiny village in the hard-rock terrain of northeastern India’s Jharkhand State, Dumka District, where wooded hillocks ripple through valleys and over ridges before they swell into mountains.

New Classroom Roof Brings Happy Faces

*U Village, Sri Lanka

It was a rainy day when we went to the village. It was exciting to see the villagers awaiting our arrival and thanking us for bringing the villagers together to help build the most important classroom. They said now their children are protected from the sun and rain, and also that classes may be held in sun or rain, now that the children have a roof.

Gaining from Computer Skills

*Bendall Village, Afghanistan

Students who have learned computer skills in our center are now able to go to Bazaar and find jobs to earn better incomes for themselves. More than a hundred girls and boys benefited from our computer center.

At this time, people in this area have great concern for their safety and their lives. Due to kidnappings and attacks from radical groups, we may have to limit our activities or relocate them. We will keep you posted in the future.
