Farmers to Fight Malnutrition

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

 

We had a cold winter in Yakawlang this year, and even though it is springtime, the trees haven't budded, yet.  Presently, we have distributed more than 16,000 poplar cuttings! As we give the cuttings to the local farmers, we also teach them how to plant hybrid poplars. So far, 20 farmers have been trained this year.

National Director Visits DG Village

*DG Village, Nepal

 

This month, I taught lessons on worldview and development to the community people. They were very excited and learnt a lot. We discussed how beliefs, values, and behaviour play a great role in our lives. They understood that community development is not only led by individuals but culture itself, too.

Small Shop Making a Big Difference

*RT Village, Nepal

 

Devna lives in RT village. She and her husband live with their two children. Her life was full of struggle and sorrows because of poverty. She and her husband worked very hard, but they were still facing financial, food, clothing and other problems. At times, they would only eat once a day, at other times, they wouldn’t eat at all. Their children used to cry because of hunger, and it was a really difficult life for them.

First Phase of Water Project Complete

Mawa, Indonesia

 

The Mawa Village has never had access to water in their village before.  For decades, they have had to either hike 30 minutes to a spring to do their washing or gather water for cooking.  During dry times, they have had to purchase water from outside. This has led to obvious hygiene-related problems, and also economic problems.
