Commitment and Hard Work
*JT Village, Nepal

Many changes have been seen in the last quarter. Villagers seem more committed and hardworking. Monsoon season has started, and farmers are busy planting rice. Some of the parents started farming tomatoes.
 
GHNI National Field Leader Kiran, visited the school and the farmers' homes and fields. Children are now helping their parents at home. They are more disciplined in school and at home, with their appearance neat and clean. We found that their relationships with their parents have also improved.
 
Farmers increased their income by rearing goats and starting micro businesses. Goats provided for them a good profit, and they began growing green vegetables in their gardens. Children help their parents at home in with the animals. **Pramod (grade 4) and **Sanjiv (grade 2) have been so helpful to their parents in caring for their goats.
 
We had a great opportunity to partner with another NGO to raise awareness about saving food and cleanliness in a primary school in JT Village. This is very important because many children die of hunger. We want to make sure every child is aware and understands how to not waste food. We all need to eat healthy food, drink safe water, and make our hands clean before eating.

Commitment and Hard Work
*JT Village, Nepal

This past quarter, we taught about clean drinking water, personal health care, and sanitation. They learned about the importance of a clean environment. We taught lessons on disease prevention for diseases such as malaria, diarrhea, and dysentery.
 
We continued teaching lessons on slavery prevention to raise awareness. We continually teach the lessons to the women groups, literacy classes, and children's groups.
 
Ten families have constructed toilets and have started using them. They have become models for other villages. In DG Village, the behavior of community people has changed. Women are attentive in our education class where they are also learning Transformational Community Development (TCD) lessons. They realized that education and their attitude can give them a better destiny.
 
**Devaj is an energetic and helpful TCD committee member in this village. He has a wife and two children. When he understood the vision of GHNI, he became so helpful in our work to raise awareness in the village. **Bhadra, Devaj's wife, now fully understands the importance of health and hygiene. They decided to build a toilet in their home. Since they started using the toilet, they do not want to go to an open toilet.
 
Devaj has helped to raise awareness with the surrounding communities about the need of a toilet in every house. He is not a educated person, but he now understands the toilet is very important and can save him and his family from various diseases. He shares the importance of toilets and encourages his neighbors and relatives to use the toilet and keep clean.
 
His daughter and son are attending school regularly. His wife Bhadra works in the field and also looks after goats and cows. They are helpful to maintain their family.
 
In this village, there is child marriage. Most of the children do not go to school, and many villagers drink alcohol and stay idle. We are raising awareness about these issues and their attitude has changed.
 
Some TCD workers in the cluster village requested to go and teach, if it is possible. They wanted to help others build toilets in their village. It was difficult to travel to the village for our staff members, so GHNI provided bicycles for **Suprit and **Shreyas. This will help our staff members reach the village more quickly and easily.
