The Cluster Effect Reaches More

Moses, our Transformational Community Development (TCD) worker in Ahumbe Village, and Mama Donna, who has gone through TCD Training of Teachers (TOT 1), recently engaged residents of Apir, a community about 22 miles away from Ahumbe, on TCD. They taught the locals handwashing, dish rack construction, and helped the women construct one.   

Making Room for More Students

Ahumbe Primary School is growing day by day. Some challenges are resulting from the growth. One pronounced challenge is the lack of school infrastructure with no completed buildings or furniture. The six-classroom building that was started last March is still at the foundation stage. Construction of the building could not continue throughout the rainy season because of the excessive downpours experienced this year. The rains are subsiding fast and it is hoped that work will commence in earnest in the next one-to-two weeks.

Giving Tuesday is Today!

The day we've been waiting for has finally arrived! Giving Tuesday is the perfect opportunity to become a more committed supporter of GHNI. As a reminder, there are 3 easy ways you can join in the movement today and help villagers end their extreme poverty: 

1. Give

Every gift makes a big impact! For example, did you know just $10 can provide gardening equipment for a family to grow their own food? Or that just $25 can provide a pair of chickens?

Recovering from Malaria & Typhoid

Moses, our Transformational Community Development (TCD) worker in Ahumbe Village, took ill with malaria and typhoid in August. He was placed on a prolonged typhoid treatment throughout the month. As Moses was not physically fit and, he was unable to carry out or coordinate any TCD activity in the village within the month. He is much better now and recuperating. We wish Moses a quick and full recovery and look forward to an eventful TCD September.
