New Farming Techniques Open Doors

Sindh Province, Pakistan


Recently Malik* escaped the clutches of his landlord and has moved into the training centre of a GHNI partner. He has been working hard in the fields that Omar* planted with 78 naseberry plants where he also planted fodder for livestock. He is learning how to make compost and, as a result, decreasing the expenses of expensive fertilisers. Malik is using the compost on the fodder and naseberry fields. 


Malik said, “Since I have moved to this place, I am learning new ways to get more for less. I learnt how to make compost and when I talked with my friend Ali, he was eager to learn the same principles too. He invited us to come to his farm and teach him.” These new techniques are opening doors to reach others to share and to help. 


Our Transformational Community Development (TCD) programme is helping the communities to raise the resources they need from their own villages. We are assisting in 21 different villages to lift them out of poverty. Our recent programmes are making a difference. FAITH (Food Always In The Home) gardens are helping the villages to deal with food needs. FAITH gardens and Self-Help Groups are providing more opportunities to share and make strong relations. 


Our team is busy in meetings with village committees in different places. Recently, we were invited to different villages to share Health lessons as Pakistan is facing the third wave of COVID-19. 


We have made a “Village Development Programme”. Through the TCD lessons, we are having an impact on more villages. More villages are now included in the cycle of transformation.

Thank you!
