The RWH progress as of 12thof April, 2017

After plastering the walls of the two wells covering the wells was a next important step. Generally, up to this moment about 90% of the work has been done. See the pictures below:

Plastered wells

Covering the wells with steel bar (kusuka nondo)

Village leaders were there supervising the whole process and making sure that no single equipment is lost.

Can this process (villagers’ involvement/ujenzi shirikishi) also serves as a means of developing capacity to these villagers?????????!!.

Maybe yes...

Concrete exercise locally known as “kumwaga zege”

Having everything done with the wells now comes in the process of creating good roofing infrastructure for harvesting rain water.

  1. Unlike other traditions and taboos, that a black goat has to be slaughtered to protect our properties from evils, meaning that we have sacrificed our time and energy and so God protect our RWH wells and success should be seen………..; but this was just to congratulate our-self after successfully having everything done.
  2. Many thanks for Eng. Festo and village leaders for good supervision.
  3. Finally, many thanks to the villagers for giving us 100% support.
