KB Village in Burkina Faso has been long impacted by extreme poverty, and attitudes are difficult due to historical NGO handouts. We are teaching a small group the process of Transformational Community Development and how they might end their own poverty. It is a difficult first year, but we know with persistence, things will improve. There is little access to clean water, minimal latrine use and many children with preventable disease. GHNI is working with the villagers to teach them how their lives will change over the next few years. With donor support, we can end poverty here.
Transformational Community Development (TCD)© is our coaching-based process for helping a village transform itself out of severe poverty. Our TCD Staff help the village form five development committees, then coach the committees in the low cost, low tech, locally available ways to lead their village to sustainable transformation.
