Lessons Inspiring Change

*DG Village, Nepal

 

This past quarter, we taught about clean drinking water, personal health care, and sanitation. They learned about the importance of a clean environment. We taught lessons on disease prevention for diseases such as malaria, diarrhea, and dysentery.

 

We continued teaching lessons on slavery prevention to raise awareness. We continually teach the lessons to the women groups, literacy classes, and children’s groups.

 

Commitment and Hard Work

Many changes have been seen in the last quarter. Villagers seem more committed and hardworking. Monsoon season has started, and farmers are busy planting rice. Some of the parents started farming tomatoes.

 

Education & Agriculture Progress

This past month, GHNI National Leader Kiran visited the school and the farmer's house to see their progress in JT Village. GHNI staff members could see the villagers’ happiness on their faces and their children’s progress. Children started helping their parents at home and were more disciplined in school and at home. We found that their relationships with their parents also improved.

 

Raising Awareness of Healthy Habits

*JT Village, Nepal

 

This month we had a great opportunity to work with a partner NGO in raising awareness about saving food and cleanliness in Khadwalkot Primary School in JT Village. Children and teachers were happy and excited to learn about saving food. There are many children who die due to lacking food. We taught the importance that every child know how to not waste food, eat healthy food, drink safe water, and keep their hands clean before eating.

 

Engaging New Villages

Opening Project in DG Village!

*DG Village, Nepal

 

In February, we started work in the eastern part of Nepal in *DG Village. We have identified 300-350 families to work with--about 2,000 people living in this village. Most of the villagers are from the poor Rshidev (Musahar) tribe of the oppressed Dalits community. They don't have good houses but live in small huts with their cattle. Most of them do not have their own land. They don't have toilets and use the open field.

Turning Milk into Money

*JT Village, Nepal

 

Buna’s family is a model of the Micro Loan Program of GHNI-Nepal. Originally from the Dang district in the western part of Nepal, she was poor and had no way of surviving. Buna came to Kathmandu with her husband and two little sons, searching for a job and better life. She now lives in JT Village and her children go to Khadwalkot Primary School.
