Champion for Change

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia

 

As we all know, ninety percent of the Borena people are pastoralist who follow their herd, place to place, to look for pasture and water for their animals. When GHNI-Etthiopia started working in this area, it was very challenging to introduce farming to them. According to GHNI’s Transformational Community Development (TCD) strategy, we found a very good person to be a champion in the village to positively influence community members. After that, we selected twelve people for the Agriculture Group, trained them, and provided farm materials. This is the fourth year of activity in this village and the group has almost 80,000 birr saved in the bank. Most of the villagers changed their lives by farming their own farm besides the group farm. All of them they can hope for a very good life.
