Transformational Community Development (TCD) in Bangladesh with GHNI is still quite in the early stages. Yet so much good has happened in our time there. With excellent partnerships in place from the start, it has made all the difference in how quickly and quality went hand-in-hand.
Education has been at the forefront since day-1. It’s been amazing to watch how:
- many more children are attending school
- many more children are experiencing the value and future in education
- many more parents are now being “pulled-into” the education process, embracing how their children need to continue furthering their education, even at the expense of needs at home
- many parents are being ushered into the reality of facing old ideas of marrying off their very young daughters … and instead, allowing them to finish school and potentially into higher quality lives married or single
With better educations, comes organically, better methods of micro-enterprise, food cleanliness and harvesting methods. So much of life goes hand-in-hand, regardless of living in Bangladesh, Serbia, Armenia or West Chicago, Illinois. Life is extremely interconnected.
Catastrophic flooding in Houston, Texas USA and Bangladesh were only days apart. All of us in the USA are helping the Texas victims in whatever capacity we can. If you are so inclined, please consider helping the flood victims of Bangladesh.
