A Young Man’s Good Start

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia


Gelgelo is a 23-year-old young man living in Dida Hara Village. His father and mother died when he was only three years old. He was an orphan with no sisters or brothers. Supported by his relatives as he grew up, he watched cows for others to earn a little money to help himself, but that was not enough for him to live on. One day, Gelgelo met the Transformational Community Development (TCD) group member and spoke to them about TCD. Gelgelo explained his interest to be a group member of the Income Generation Group. He received three goats from GHNI-Ethiopia, and besides this, he has started trading goats, making 13,000 birr (about $470) within eight months. He is very happy with his progress.
