The women have taken ownership of the project right from the beginning. They got directly involved with all aspects from community planning to construction to management and maintenance. They have carried stones and mixed concrete, they have created management plans,maintenance logs, conflict resolution agreements and self governance guidelines. They are empowering themselves to make their lives and the lives of their families better.
The training sessions started out with 10 to 15 participants and in some villages have grown to over 40 participates. This shows what women can do with a little help and support.
The women have been eager to get involved. Here they are helping to set the security grill and dig a trench for the installation of the water taps trough structure. Soon this first phase of the Nasaru Project with be in full swing with regular water delivery to all of the communities.
