New Cropping Ideas

Dhoker Jhara Village, India


As we journey through the process of Transformational Community Development (TCD), we are giving the villagers ideas and techniques that will help them be more productive. We are seeing changes happening in the villagers’ lives with each step they take. Now we are coaching them with a new means to further prosper their hard work.


Triple Value of Goats!

Jatapara Village, India


Last year in Jatapara Village, some villagers had started goat farming for income generation. Around eight villagers took the initiative to do it. This month, I gather them up and we estimated the cost of these goats today. We found the smallest goat was valued around 6000 rupees (about $94), which is very encouraging for all the villagers who are raising these goats. This price is three times more than last year.


Reaching the Slums

Seeking Gas Connections

Kharibari, India


We are pursuing expanding Transformational Community Development (TCD) in Kharibari. We are joyful to see the changes happening around the village and in the villagers’ lives. Right after our very first outdoor TCD group training, we could see the waves of excitement spread all over the village.


Transformation Lights the Way

Kharibari Village, India


In this quarter, we were able to hold the first-ever committee training in Kharibari Village, which was wonderful. This was a three-day training, and I am happy about the outcome. For most of them, this was the first training of any kind in their lives.


Exploring New Work Opportunities

Hoogly Village, India


This quarter, I have been working among two people groups. One is the slum people who live beside the rail track, and other is the refugees who had to flee from Bangladesh during the Bangladesh liberation war. They are millions in number, and most of them are living in extremely poor and sick conditions. The place called “Camp” is one of the places where these refugees are the majority.
