Community Leaders Raise Concern on Non-Involvement and Inclusion in The Project Selection

Community leaders during the outreach at Warure primary School

07th February 2018: The community leaders complained that they were not aware of the project despite their membership in ward development committee and School Based Management Committee members. Inclusion of beneficiary communities in projects selection and implementation is one we have emphasised for so long drawing from the benefits this has on ownership and sustainability of  projects.

The School Lacks Functional Water Supply 

A dysfunctional hand pump (the only source of water) at Warure Primary School

07th February 2018: With its about 16,000 pupils, Warure Primary School lacks a functional water supply for her population. This has heightened the risk of disease outbreak as personal hygiene is strongly correlated with access to water. Having 16,000 pupils in a facility without access to water is a public health concern and constitutes a red alert signal.

Follow the Money Team Went for a Community Outreach

07th February 2018: A major outcome of the community outreach was that Follow The Money confirmed the implementation have started but at slow pace and have been finally stalled. This culminated to several engagements efforts with the media and relevant government agencies to resume the implementation and consequently the completion of the projects.
