GHNI receives both Monthly and Quarterly Reports from each village TCD work and TCD trainers. All S. Asia(India/Nepal/Sri Lanka/Bangladesh), Armenia, and Serbia reports come to me initially, then on to the Geneva and Orlando offices for further editing and publishing on our GHNI WEB SITE. It’s truly a privilege to get an initial look at all that’s going on in these regions!
Nepal has a new village initiative and it’s not afraid to boast about it a bit! We in GHNI are so proud of this village and its’ TCD Trainer, as they begin to tackle all the needful areas of their village. It’s a tall order for a truly impoverished village. Yet they take this baton of responsibility seriously and in unity. This Quarterly Report represents them well:

In the month of February 2017, we started our work in eastern part of Nepal. We have targeted 300-350 families to work with about 2000 people living in this village. Most of the people are from poor Rshidev (Musahar) tribe of Dalits community (Oppressed). They don’t have good houses but live in small hut where their cattle live together. Most of them do not have their own land.
They don’t have toilet that is why use open field. We discussed about the health issues that has been affected by open toilet. Now they realized that it is very important to have toilet at their house. Therefore we have started toilet construction in partnership with VDC in that village. People in that village both man and women actively participated at the program. In the first phase, they have selected 30 homes to make toilets for TCD program to bring health awareness in that village. They have committed labor themselves for the toilet construction. Also, our staffs have started teaching children, those who don’t go to school and also help women for literacy classes. They have already made committee for toilet construction and micro loan. Suni M. and Sripa R. are helping teaching anti-human trafficking and TCD lessons.
In this month we have continued teaching lessons on anti-human trafficking, awareness introductory lessons to the women groups, literacy classes and teaching children. We taught general lessons on health and hygiene. We taught hand washing to both women and children.
VDC couldn’t provide toilet materials to 30 families at a time. Out of them 10 families have started constructing toilets.

- In the upcoming quarter, we have a plan for building relationship with community people linking with women groups and start self-sustainable groups. Raise awareness about anti-human trafficking in the village.

You joining us in this endeavor in Nepal is having a huge impact! Thanks for being there with us! Daniel
GHNI-Nepal is wholly committed to TCD-Transformational Community Development. Disaster Relief, in the mean time, has consumed all our energies and resources to date since the earthquakes. We are still in the throws of disaster relief right now.
The majority of our income-donations for Nepal continues to be requested and focused on DR. Vast numbers of villages are still in need of DR help from so many sources, and we are helping in every conceivable way we can in GHNI.
Winter is coming quick, and shelter from the elements is essential to all remote villages. So we continue disaster relief.
Yet … yet, GHNI is not primarily a DR agent. So as soon as we can see the “light-of-day” from DR … we are transitioning in TCD! Thanks for being so faithful in helping us in this hoped-for transition coming soon in Nepal. It’s our heart to provide self-sustainability as quickly as possible … !
Earthquake disaster relief continues via GHNI …
Short Term Team – STT/GHNI was on the ground last week in Nepal, as they helped in relieving “some” of the devastation encountered by villagers and in Kathmandu.
Amazing hospitality never ceases to amaze our team, as even now living in temporary shelters made of sticks, roof tins, tarps, etc., the locals in one tiny village we helped, insisted on feeding us the best of their best. “Humbled”, is a word that couldn’t come close to how we felt. These people are amazing in how they are committed to re-establishing life, regardless of resources. We were there simply to provide such.
Provisions of roofing tin(s), tarps, rice and other food essentials were distributed by our team in both remote village locations, as well as in Kathmandu.
Purchasing and utilizing “local resources” is a foundational GHNI concept. GHNI desires, as much as possible, to support and enhance the local economies, purchasing from these sources when possible, even in disaster relief times such as this.
Beauty of life, new and not so, continues to rise from the rubble of these types of disasters … giving us all a glimpse of the “potential” goodness of life and the extraordinary hope intrinsic in some.
Pratiraksha is doing such a phenomenal work in and around her home town of Dhangadhi, Nepal! Many times every month, she is spending time with children, parents and family members, “pulling” them into her warm personality and deep knowledge concerning Counter-Human Trafficking, HIV/AIDS awareness, Health, and Education.
One of the beauties of seeing her work is in how she can so easily “draw/pull” a large number of people into her circle of influence, helping them in differing methods of education and the like. She and her mom also run an orphanage of 17 children, and an open-door clinic. Her ability to integrate Transformational Community Development(TCD) of GHNI into all she is and does, has been a win-win for all involved, especially the recipients of her work there in Nepal.
