Water Pump Fixed with Local Support

Ramantar (RM) Village, Nepal


As we have taught various Transformational Community Development (TCD) activities with the families and groups of villagers, they have been very excited and encouraged by the TCD lessons and activities! 


This month, we were successful in fixing a hand pump that is used for drinking, cooking and washing for the villagers in the lower belt of the Ramantar Village. We taught lessons about using safe water for drinking, cooking and washing. The financial support of one of my friends is what helped us to fix the pump. He is a social worker and leader. When I shared about the water problems of this community, he supported us with the hand pump for the village. 


Beside this, I visited Ramantar Village and two new ones, Sunder Basti and Jogital Villages; I shared TCD lessons of Income Generation and Wellness Education. 


The second wave of the coronavirus is spreading again in the community. I shared about preventative safety measures to keep all family members safe. I taught about maintaining sanitation, using masks, hand washing with soap or using sanitiser, and to keep social distancing. I visit the community day-by-day and encourage them at their houses.  


Success Story

Tejumola* and his family live in Ramantar Village. He is one of the TCD committee members. He had a financial problem about one year ago. He is skilled at making ornaments, but he had no money to start this work. Before COVID-19, he used to work in an ornament making factory but, once the lockdown started, it was closed. He was in a very difficult situation. At this time, he joined TCD classes and took the responsibility of committee membership. He was given Seed (start-up) Money. With that Seed Money, he started a business in the work of ornament-making in his own home. Now, thanks to TCD, he is a real entrepreneur! We are so proud of him! On the one hand, it was safe from COVID-19 to stay at home, and on the other hand, he made a good income from this. He said that his monthly income is now between 25,000 to 30,000 NPR. It is an incredibly good income! It happened because of TCD teaching and support. He has a wife and three children. All the children go to school. Before TCD, he had no good shelter, but now he is building a house with two rooms. It means this family is going to be financially self-sustaining. Tejumola says TCD and its teaching is very important. He wants to give thanks to GHNI.  


Thank you!
