The people of Algamusu are very hardworking and productive farmers. They have an adequate food supply as the soil is very fertile. Their water supply comes form hand dug wells and a river. During the rainy season there is an adequate water supply though it is not clean. Even the unclean water is scarce during the dry season. There is no clinic or health facility in the village, however the people are considered as being healthy due to TCD lessons on preventative health. Most of the village is illiterate, making them disadvantaged in many respects. The people of Algamusu are constantly being attacked from cattle rustlers who steal from them and kill them if they try to stop them.
Transformational Community Development (TCD) This process helps villagers find their own solutions to the five areas keeping them in extreme poverty - clean, accessible water; a renewable, nutritious food source; education for children; wellness habits and regional health concerns; and income generation for families.
