Empowered to Grow

Alishow Village, Ethiopia

Helen is 37 years old and lives in Alishow Village. She has four children. Recently, she related her story to our Transformational Community Development (TCD) worker. She newly joined our TCD group after her neighbour, Jamila, told her about TCD. When Helen heard and saw her friend’s tremendous change, she decided to participate with her friends in the group.

Helen is staying four months with the group. She is still a group member and her change is encouraging. When the group members distribute their dividend, she got 3,380 Birr (almost $165). This is her first big money, and she very excited by this. After seeing these results, she started her own farm near the group farm. Besides this, TCD Worker Halima is teaching her friends and the community about wellness.
