The Family Farm

Harowayo Village, Ethiopia


Wareo is a ten-year-old boy. He is living in Harowayo Village with his family. He is a strong boy and, after school every day, he is helping his family in the field. He learned a lot on how to plant vegetables and other fruit trees.


As the concept of Transformational Community Development (TCD) transforms all the villagers, they are working hard to change their lives. The impact of TCD has not only impacted elders in the village, but the children, too. Now the schools also have demonstration acres in the compound that can bring positive impact on the children. Wareo is also very active in school and he transfers the knowledge from his parents to the other students. This is very encouraging for the community as they can now develop a good work ethic.
