Turning from a Life of Struggle
Posted December 30, 2018
This month, we focused on our work in the field. Farmers are encouraged and willing to do their best. We had group discussions, taught lessons on family planning, personal health, and hygiene and discussed creating better income by doing small business. We continued with house visits to encourage the farmers.
**Pasindu is now 58 years old. His family is not educated and struggled to survive on their own. When we started Transformational Community Development (TCD) class, they rejected the concept and declined to join. Pasindu doubted he needed lessons at his age. I persisted with making house visits to clearly teach them TCD lessons related to sanitation, health care, income generation, disease prevention, and nutritional food.
They are very happy and expect to attend more TCD classes. Pasindu expressed that this program is important for them. “Please, sister, come and teach our backward community people.”
