Peace Corps Volunteer Directing Project:
Monitoring and Maintenance:
Head of the group, Marikee Danfakha, will monitor and maintain the inflow and outflow of the basins.
Construction of the basin will reinforce the already good work going on, allow for the expansion of the gardening area, and allow for gardening deeper into the dry season when benefits to diet and income will be most dramatic. In addition, it will continue to foster an excellent relationship between area volunteers and the community, and allow the space to be used for demonstrations and training. As the existing garden augments household nutrition and income, current membership will expand, improving the economic prospects of the villagers.
This project is part of our ongoing Western Africa Water & Sanitation Program.
