Personal transformation is a vital component in the development process. The objective is to assist people in becoming self-reliant and then give them the opportunity to make a commitment to God and to others in need.

The GYTTE program staff do more than impart knowledge and offer hands-on training. They also share their faith and life witness. At any training event it is as common to hear a personal testimony as it is an explanation on construction methods or teaching skills.

The development tools offered by the GYTTE program are provided by Christian supporters responding to the call of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Scholarships, livestock, the teaching of agricultural practices and appropriate technologies are all gifts from God.

The area of Church and Faith Development is as important in strengthening people´s capabilities to respond to their own needs and those of their community, as any other area in which the GYTTE program serves. Church and Faith Development is fundamental to the development process.
