Assistance given to


men, women and children in Africa

Hope has been given to the people of Togo through the Medical Clinic and by the health/ income-generation program, part-funded by the Australian government and implemented by EHC Togo. This year the 10 income generating groups who received a loan to start their minibusiness reported an increase in income, so 21 new groups are being planned for 2015. To improve family health, 24 village toilets were built for 397 men, women and children, 6,209 people were given increased access to medicines (including HIV treatment) and 16 committees continue to function in providing health advice to villages surrounding the Medical Clinic as well as referring people to the clinic.

The aim of the Eloi Prison program in Ethiopia is to give hungry and sick prisoners hope for a new future, promoting health and education, reducing crime and enabling prisoners to support themselves and their families through vocational training in sewing and woodworking. This year our partner, Eloi Prison Ministry, trained 100 inmates in tailoring skills and 30 inmates in rug-making. 10 new sewing machines were distributed to prisons so that inmates could earn enough money for their basic needs while serving time in the prison. Children of the prisoners live with their parents in the prison so a small school has commenced to give basic education to these young children.


men and women In Malawi and Zambia directly benefitted from training, seed and equipment with another


family members and fellow villagers sharing in the increase in food , income and health benefits as a result.

We are delighted to report that another successful year has been completed in the Food Security program with the local Malawi and Zambia governments recommending to EHC Malawi and EHC Zambia the most needy areas in which the project could take place so that maximum benefit is provided for poor and marginalised communities. As well as training 12,829 poor resource farmers in environmentally friendly farming techniques and assisting them with initial seed, fertilizer and equipment, the program has also installed or upgraded 236 water wells bringing clean, readily-accessible water to 5,502 people. 4,250 treated mosquito nets were disributed to families at risk of contracting Malaria, with women and children being a priority. 68 people with disabilities have been included in the training so that they can obtain a livelihood as a result of the skills training and capacity building, with two children being given wheelchairs so they would be able to attend school. 3,495 people were provided with HIV/Aids voluntary

testing and counselling with 7,679 people receiving access to essential medicines and health commodities including HIV treatment. 3,317 people were provided with awareness raising/training on gender issues and women's equal rights, with 125 women's groups being supported across Malawi, Zambia and Togo.

Mr Chikande Phiri proved to be a model conservation farmer and will soon become self -sustainable because of his initiative of using animal manure, reducing dependence on the project. His family, to whom he has also taught the modern farming technology, boasts of enough food to eat with surplus to sell to help support his school age children. Mr Chikande is an example of men that appreciate the Food Security Project and he is determined to become food secure, even after the project is phased out.

Basic education for


children in Bangladesh and India

A 2013 evaluation found that the Love Anuppampattu Community Development Project is a wonderful asset to the local area with a Primary school at the heart of this program for a low-caste village. Attendance and pass marks are high with low absenteeism and all 200 boys and girls passing their exams thanks to motivated staff working with the entire community, and a midday meal assisting learning. Parent- teacher interviews are being held every 2 months with health, safety, parenting education and awareness-raising held monthly. Local officers from the government undertake official medical checks once a year finding the children to be well and happy with no evidence of malnutrition,

thanks to the daily feeding program. All children completing Grade 5 since the school commenced have successfully graduated to High School. To assist the parents increase their income and find a way out of poverty, sewing classes for unskilled village women take place with a 50/50 scheme which teaches women to save money in a bank account until they have earned 50% of the cost of the machine, the 50% remaining being paid by the program. In partnership with India EHC, this program is giving poor families from one village hope for a better future.

Sewing Certificates are presented on completion of the tailoring classes which enables the women to apply for a job at one of the many garment factories in Bangladesh.

Risan, one of the 1200 boys & girls in the four primary schools in Bangladesh, is pictured here with his mother who is extremely grateful that her son can receive an education. This tribal family came to Dhaka from a remote village in the north in order to find work in the city. They are very poor and live in the slums, sharing a bed in a one room dwelling. Risan’s father works as a daily labourer, eking out an existence for his family. With minimal income, the temptation is to send Risan out to find work but his parents know that the only future for Risan is for him to gain an education. Thank you to all the sponsors and to our Bangladesh partner, Every Home Contact, who have given hope to the 1,187

children in the four primary schools. As part of this community development program, the children received daily hot lunches, uniforms and basic school equipment. To increase family income, 91 men and women have been trained in sewing or helped to purchase a rickshaw, giving families hope for a future without poverty.

Our thanks also go the Australian government who have assisted financially for development programs in Malawi, Zambia and Togo. It has been rewarding to see an increase in both donors and income this year and the Directors are grateful for another successful year in which people’s lives have been wonderfully changed .
