Spreading Success

Harowayo Village, Ethiopia


When we started Transformational Community Development (TCD) in Harowayo Village, it was difficult to convince villagers to participate. They had no agriculture knowledge. They wondered how someone could put seeds in the ground and expect to grow and earn money. Our TCD team members worked hard to communicate and train them until, finally, some villagers decided to work with the Agriculture Committee.


In the first year, they produced different kinds of vegetables and earned very good money. They were happy to see this result. After this good harvest, many of the villagers came to join the group. TCD workers organized training for them, and they established another group. The new group has begun preparing land to plant different kinds of vegetables.
