Taking Ownership of Development

*DG Village, Nepal


In this quarter, community members talked together about ways they can be examples to other members of the community. We are continuing our teach lessons on income generation, wellness, and hygiene. We are also teaching the women and children.


We are giving the priority to villagers based on their need and how we can help them, which is a great comfort to the people. They put income generation as their first priority. They want to overcome poverty. Many of them have started micro businesses. Now they are earning good income and being an example to other villagers in the community. They could help their families. Most of the community women stay idle, but when they join the group, they become more active and productive. More and more community women are interested in learning about it.


TCD Update


  • Water – As we focus on teaching lessons about safe drinking water and disease prevention, people are more cautious and careful about protecting themselves from waterborne diseases.
  • Food – We are teaching villagers to grow healthy food for their families.
  • Income Generation – Micro business and the goat loan programme have been helpful and encouraging for families.
  • Education – Community villagers are joining the women’s literacy classes and children’s classes. More children have started going to the school. Our programme has been helpful to the community school.
  • Wellness – Villagers look neat and clean. They are keeping their houses and surrounding area clean. This is a good transformation TCD is bringing. We are encouraging and teaching villagers healthy living.


Thank you!
