Prospering Despite Adversity

Harowayo Village, Ethiopia


This last year has been difficult for Harowayo Village. There were tribal conflicts in the area causing unsettling among villagers. However, despite that difficult situation, most of the group members still prospered. The Transformational Community Development (TCD) Agriculture Group’s recent harvest brought in 23,000 birr (about $800). The farmers produced tomatoes, onions, carrots, and green peppers. Peace has come to the area and life has greatly improved. All group members are working hard and trying to earn more income. More villages are beginning TCD in their areas.
