Work Through & With Local Churches
TDA is a faith based development organization that is an arm of the Ethiopian church. We work through local churches. As we enter villages we connect to local churches and their leaders. Through appreciative enquiry involving pastors, lay leaders, women and community leaders community mobilization and relationship building takes place. Together, we ensure that all segments of the community are engaged and have the opportunity to be served, irrespective of gender, disability or religious belief.
Secondly, we use church land to as demonstration farm plots so the community can learn about new way of farming.
