Tailoring Success

Gem Village, Kenya

 

Gem Village lies on the west side of Isiolo town. The communities living in this village mostly speak Turkana. Villagers have seen education as a foreign tool to them. Few would bother with it, and this contributed to a lot of children dropping out of school. Since Gem Village is only a few kilometres away, some of the children end up in the town streets when they drop out of school.

The four years are almost over and the good news is that GHNI has worked hard to accomplish their mission of restoring hope to the hopeless through community and individual transformation. The five areas of Transformational Community Development (TCD) are used as transformational indicator tools since they are the basic needs of any healthy family.

Selling Local

Gem Village, Kenya

 

It has been a long struggle for Gem Village, their dependency syndrome being similar to that of many other villages. Many depend on government relief and other organisations that are offering to give relief to help. When we introduced our programme of coaching, many things were different: it didn’t work as usual per the villagers’ expectations.

Leading the Way

Gem Village, Kenya

 

The success of a community project is dependent upon various factors such as perception, willingness, understanding and sense of ownership. However, from our experience the overriding success factor is the willingness of the community to participate and take over sustainability responsibilities from project implementers. We have noted this does not come easily.

Soft Loans, Solid Results

Gem Village, Kenya

 

Transformation is the key to our success: this takes effect by changing attitudes and making individuals believe in themselves. It takes time to produce results. With determination and continuous input from a good coach, something will happen soon: one person at a time, one family at a time, one village at a time, and eventually the whole country and then the world. We will bring real transformation and restore hope and help through this process.

Education Brings Hope

Gem Village, Kenya

 

With COVID-19 being a threat to the whole globe, the community of Gem Village has been in its own world. The government of Kenya has issued a directive for a lockdown across most of the towns and villages where cases have been reported as well as a dusk to dawn curfew across the whole country. Wearing masks, washing hands, and maintaining social distance have been mandated by law in order to protect everyone.
