TCD Change Our Family
I am Niloy Malo, member of Lotus TCD(Transformational Community Development) group at Ghoraghat, Dinajpur district, Bangladesh. I read in grade seven. We are two brothers and sister. We do not have land for vegetable cultivation. My parents are working a small work in this village. We have 5 members in our family. Before join my family with TCD we were very poor. I saw everyday my parents do lot of quarrel. But after having teaching of TCD my parent’s attitude changed and we are having peaceful situation our families. I am taught many subjects which helped in my education. I have learned how to take care and keep good health from TCD groups.
There is some uncultivated land near hour house which is belongs to our neighbors. I helped my father to plant papaya tree and vegetable garden in that land near our house. After few months the papaya tree grow-up and have flower and fruits.
Now our family do not need to buy vegetable from market, also I distribute to our neighbors. We get vitamin, mineral and others which we need. I give thanks to TCD group for given me a wonderful opportunity to learn and utilize in my life.
My family also taking all decision together. Before we took loan from micro credit but now we start small savings.
