High School Student Gives Back

Transformational Community Development (TCD) is all about the community leading their own change. In this story recently shared with us by GHNI-India, we were encouraged to see that age doesn’t matter when it comes to serving one’s community!

“We have been able to train the committee and they are able to see the importance of TCD. 

“Det’ is a student in grade 12. She knows the importance of education. During our TCD training, she actively took part in learning about community development. 

“In our last lesson with the community, we could identify problems that are preventing them from development. Lack of education was their top problem. So as a community they made two action steps. 

“One: All women agreed to send their kids to school on time.

“Two: Det’ will teach all kids before they go to school. She has already started teaching those kids who otherwise would do nothing after or before school time.”
