The Key to Success: Community Development Councils
Welthungerhilfe’s support has enabled a village in Ethiopia to develop so well that it now serves as an example to other villages and has attracted the attention of the government. The issues that needed to be addressed were nutrition, hygiene, clean water and the adaptation of agriculture to worsening climate conditions. The key to success was founding a community development council to coordinate and implement the village’s decisions. Since the results were so impressive, residents are fully engaged and on board. The focus is now on knowledge exchanges and developing more councils.
