Water Project Survey

April 6, 2010

La Chica accompanied Simon, the Water Engineer, and his colleagues to Longido on Good Friday to begin the survey required for the Lukumahi water project.  Despite La Chica’s request at the last meeting that the water committee comprise equal numbers of men and women, the committee that turned up had 13 men and 5 women.  The members have agreed to find more women to make up the short fall, which pleased La Chica however she is a little sceptical as to whether the women will be allowed to have a voice at meetings.  The survey covered the number of goats, cows, sheep and donkeys located in Altapesi, and the number of people, to ensure the water supply and tank will be adequate to meet existing needs.

Simon is returning to Longido tomorrow to meet with the District Water Engineer to try to sort through the 46 layers of government to get some satisfactory answers regarding funding assistance – good luck Simon!
