A New Way Towards a Healthier Life

Polewali villager, Pak Mo, sitting with his garden.

Pak Mo is a 46-year-old member of the Polewali Transformational Community Development (TCD) village, where he resides with his family. Over the last 5 years, GHNI has been partnering with the community to help fulfill the basic need of clean water for every family. The GHNI team has been training program participants to change their mindset of poverty to one of hope, where they seize opportunities to work toward a better life. They then offer subsidies to those who take initiative to plan and save for necessities like piped water and latrines.

Over the past few years, Pak Mo has watched as his neighbors worked together to locate water sources and bring water into their homes. This last year was a hard one with a long dry season, and the river where Pak Mo’s family would hike for washing and bathing dried up. As he looked to his left and his right, he saw his neighbors living a new sort of life, with no worries about the basic necessity of water. He was struck with the realization that change is possible. Pak Mo has now joined the TCD program and is on his way to providing water and a bathroom for his family. It is a new, healthy way of life.

Thank you,
