Martha, from the Dakarkari tribe, is one woman in her village who has found Transformational Community Development (TCD) very beneficial and transforming. She lives in Makera Tadurga with her husband and three children. She was a full-time housewife and completely dependent on her husband, who is a subsistence farmer.

The story about our Dogon Gada TCD model village cannot be complete without making mention of the chief of the village, who is also our man of peace.
