Planting a Garden to Diversify Food Production

North Thailand TCD Expansion, Thailand

 

In September, GHNI staff visited two villages with our local Person of Peace. In the first village, we assisted partner organisations with dental hygiene training and distribution of emergency food aid to families still ailing from the economic effects of the coronavirus.

Students Progress Despite COVID Challenges

UV Village*, Sri Lanka

 

Almost all the children were present. We asked the children what their parents said about the class. They said that their parents were happy that the classes are going on and hoping that COVID-19 would not stop the ongoing classes.

 

We are happy with the progress that teachers are making, encouraging the parents to send their children to school to further their education. The children are also making progress in their studies.

Persevering with TCD Training

Sindh Province, Pakistan

 

Agriculture constitutes the largest sector of our economy. The majority of the population, directly or indirectly, is dependent on this sector, and we are uplifting the community by helping them to provide farming projects in different villages.

Learning How to Make Locally Sourced Insecticide

Ahumbe, Nigeria

 

A common challenge in most rural communities is finding effective and affordable means of dealing with various kinds of pests that adversely affect the locals. In the month of September, Moses, our TCD worker in Ahumbe, taught locals how to produce insecticide from locally sourced materials which include salt, detergent, and kerosene. Applying this knowledge will help locals save money and overcome some common illnesses.

 

Thank you!

Learning During a Pandemic

KW Village*, Nepal

 

The coronavirus has made teaching more difficult but we are continuing to carry on. The women of KW Village have a desire to learn to read and write, so I have tried to instruct them. Sometimes we visited children and taught about the importance of education. We taught health education and how they can help their parents. We encouraged people to get involved in income generation and earn some money which is helpful at this time. People are hardworking but they don't have resources, so it has been helpful to receive seed money from GHNI.

Teaching Proper Self-Care

DG Village*, Nepal

 

It is not easy to work in the field due to the coronavirus, but we are continuing to help villagers, especially with health activities this quarter. We’ve focussed on prevention methods like the use of masks, hand washing with soap and water, keeping social distances in public places, and the use of sanitiser.

Safely Promoting TCD in Nepal

RM Village*, Nepal

 

During this quarter, our Transformational Community Development (TCD) team is providing relief to families hard-hit by the coronavirus. Although there was a lockdown, I never stopped teaching people about TCD lessons. Mainly in this quarter, I focussed on the importance of being self-sustainable in every area of life.

Interest in TCD is Spreading

CP Village*, Nepal

 

I am fortunate to have been able to bring our Transformational Community Development (TCD) work in this pandemic time. I feel proud to be a TCD worker and have a good chance to help community people by sharing the important TCD lessons which bring transformation in the community. Because of our lessons, people in the village have learnt many ideas and resources to be self-sustainable, like micro shops, domestic animal keeping, poultry farming.
