What is Village TCD©?

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.
