Transformational Community Development (TCD) is many times in need of a “hook”, a way to gather people together in order to have a natural venue for explaining the who/what/when/where/why(s) of TCD. We in GHNI call this a “SEED” project day. It is a method for allowing village people to gather in significant numbers in order to build relationships that will foster a natural conversation on the importance of their lives specific to life-changing principles.
In the case of this event in January in the Jharkhand region of India, sports was used as this venue to build trust, a prerequisite to any truly quality TCD initiative.
It is so exciting to see this many people gathered to have fun. More importantly, it is exciting to see these same people gathered in order to hear how TCD can help them in key areas of their lives of Water-Food-Health-Education-Finances. GHNI continues to be committed to these “seed” days as an entry point to development and life-changing endeavors.
One thought on ““Seed” Project Day Has No Seeds …”
That’s cool! Mary
Kindness: Martin Luther King Quote Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
