Details of current status
The project will start as soon as funding is found. If funding is found, the project might start later due to the rainy season, during which construction is complicated.
The approach within this project is that the responsibility of the project lies with the beneficiaries. In all the project phases, the beneficiaries are leading in taking initiatives, formulating their ideas and making suggestions.The project staff of CARITAS KAOLACK will give advice, adjust and train the beneficiaries to create awareness to manage the project after construction is finalised. A committee will be created to arrange meetings with all beneficiaries and facilitate communication with the project staff. Women have a leading role in this committee, since they are the ones who are responsible for fetching and managing water.
