Sharing Development Knowledge

Harowayo Village, Ethiopia


Godana is living in Harowayo Village. He is 48-years-old. For several years, he had no knowledge about how to plow farmland. After he met the Transformational Community Development (TCD) workers, he got training and has become one of the group members. He is a hard worker, and besides the communal farm, he has his own farm. Last month, he produced tomato and onion on his own farm and he made 7,000 birr (about $250). During our discussion with him, he told us his life completely changed and he can help his family with three of his children now attending school. He took the TCD idea to his wife’s relatives in another village of four households to start practicing TCD in their village.
