Promoting Wellness and Preventing Illness

*DG Village, Nepal

 

In this quarter, it was difficult for the people of DG Village to stay healthy, as most people were unaware of health and safety measures. We went there and taught them about the causes, effects, and measures for the cold diseases. Most villagers were unaware of diseases like the common cold, pneumonia, dry cough, fever etc. Many older villagers don't drink sufficient amount of water, as they have a habit of only drinking water when they are thirsty. After our Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons, they understood the importance of drinking water and controlling the spread of preventable diseases. The whole community was grateful for the teaching and are waiting for further classes. 

 

TCD Update

  • Water -  They are more careful about safe drinking water and waterborne diseases, and washing and cleaning in their daily life.
  • Food - We have been coaching them for family production, consumption, and sale of crops. We have encouraged them to be entrepreneurs.
  • Income Generation - Our TCD team is encouraging poor families to start a small business, which has encouraged them to attend classes and learn more about TCD. They are reaping a lot of benefits from the micro businesses, like raising livestock. 
  • Education - Women’s literacy classes, children classes, and our TCD awareness classes have helped to make the most effective programme of TCD in this village. This will be continuing in the next quarter.
  • Wellness - Women’s participation in the class has encouraged us to help villagers with our TCD Wellness programme.

 

Thank you!
