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.

You joining us in this endeavor in Nepal is having a huge impact! Thanks for being there with us! Daniel
Dhangadhi, Nepal is 1.5 kilometers from the India border. A river and bridge separate the two. No Himalayan Mountain romantic tourism exists here whatsoever! What does exist here and all along the India/Nepal border is a battle-ground for the hearts, minds and bodies of young victims and potentials of human trafficking.
GHNI-Nepalese staff and Dan were privileged to host this week, 10 women who attended GHNI’s focused anti-human trafficking conference. Slavery abounds and is growing across the planet, especially in areas where increased wealth and extreme poverty exist in proximity. Human trafficking is the viaduct for many forms of slavery. And this geographical area is prime ground for such. These women were mentored through targeted lessons on awareness, prevention, escape from, identifying and mentoring out those trapped in being trafficked. Varied in age and vocational extremes, each carried away enough new knowledge, relationships and experience to help them mentor others in some capacity.
It is estimated that tens of thousands of women and children are trafficked in some way from Nepal(or via Nepal) into India each year. Most enter the sex industry, with little hope of ever escaping its deeply dark recesses.
A hearty “Thanks” goes out to you for also being such a great help to these women, via your contributions and support of GHNI! Dan

A Participatory Approach in the Community Projects
By, Isabelle Bourgeois
We are all aware of the challenges connected to each other, inseparable that arise in the world. The situation remains very fragile. The load for all is growing. The needs are enormous and constantly increasing. They are factors of violence, protest and desertion of their living areas by the affected populations, in particular those affected by extreme poverty.
The NGO Global Hope Network International (GHNI) has experienced positive examples of communities transformed by the active participation of people, groups and villages belonging to the marginalized in the world’s poorest areas. For 12 years in 40 partnership countries, it offers emergency, humanitarian aid and initiates community projects of 3-5 years.
Despite the risks, Global Hope Network International (GHNI) makes it a priority to help and give hope in the most heavily insulated, inaccessible and poorly developed areas. By setting up and carrying out community development projects (TCD), the organization supports, motivates and equips communities so that everyone can participate in the decisions and actions affecting its own life, its own development and that of its entourage.
These collaborative projects are spaces for dialogue and training. They allow individuals to gain confidence in themselves and their relatives. They contribute to help people to have a sense of belonging, to be essential actors in the community while encouraged to stay and develop their own place of life.
A Grand New Year and Thanks To You !!!
