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.

The women are excited about the lesson on Birth Labor and Life-Saving Skills (BliSS). They started these lessons several months ago and are still learning. BliSS books are focussing on maternal and infant health, especially during the time of pregnancy and after birth.

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.

Progress in Spite of Semi-Lockdown

North Thailand TCD Expansion

In December, for the first time in nearly seven months, there was a significant outbreak of COVID-19 in Thailand. As a result, travel restrictions and various levels of lockdown went into effect around the country. Unfortunately, this restriction meant that the GHNI team was not allowed to personally visit the villages as they are in a neighbouring province.

Our village outreach programme is helping the community to raise the resources from their own villages. We are now reaching 21 different villages to uplift the community. Our recent programmes are making a difference. FAITH GARDENS (Food Always In The Home) are helping the community to deal with food needs.

Villagers Learn First Aid and Human Trafficking Prevention

DG Village*, Nepal

Highlights of what I have done in Transformational Community Development (TCD) work is what I want to demonstrate here in DG Village. My major accomplishment in January was visiting people door-to-door and observing their lifestyle, work type and problems. I also discussed TCD lessons about self-sustainability with many families in DG Village to better their lives.

Street Children Attend School

This month, I had the opportunity to share the Transformational Community Development (TCD) village concept with respected leaders of the community. We were gathered to cooperate together for the welfare of the village. Later, I discussed how we can develop self-sustainability in the community. All the participating villagers seemed to have a positive response to the TCD village development plans that I am guiding them in.

They were delighted to receive the TCD lessons because they found them interesting to learn and apply.
