Bongour is home to at least 10,000 people in Chad. The people of this community are primarily farmers, but after many years without progress they have been slow to reach higher. Recently, however, their worldview has begun to change, and now the community would like to implement TCD.
Currently, their biggest obstacle is a scarcity of clean water. Although they have hand-dug wells near their homes that do well during the rainy season, the dry season renders the wells virtually useless. During this season they're forced to trek several kilometers to find streams or government-provided water stations, which often have long queues by the time the villagers get there.
Transformational Community Development (TCD) is a five-part coaching-based method used to create self-sustaining communities. These five parts are clean water, nutritious food, education for every boy and girl, income generation, and wellness habits. In Bongour, TCD will be implemented to achieve sustainable development in the five areas of water, food, wellness, education, and income generation.
