A Chance to Improve His Life

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia


Haleke is living in Didi Hara Village. He is 34 years old, married, and has two children. Before he joined the Transformational Community Development (TCD) Agricultural Group, life was very difficult for him. He is very young and he has the responsibility of taking care of his family, so he moves from place to place to look for pasture for his cattle. Because of this, he was often separated from his family. His family was dependent on him for income and this situation was very hard for him.


Now Haleke has a very good chance to improve his life. He joined the TCD group and took a two-day training. After the training, he started farming with the group. Besides this activity, now Haleke has started a small business. On market day he buys goats and sells them to inns in Yabelo. He regularly supplies them every week and can send his children to school.


This village is a new project area, so we need to equip them with different materials and special seeds. This will help them to accelerate their activity. We need to buy water tanks to collect water for the fields. We also need to buy agricultural materials. In general, we have different plans to implement in the next quarter.
