The project

The mise en place of projects always steps on an intense awareness programme involving communities, in order to improve their fundamental role. Beneficiary communities represent a crux point in the developing process, for that reason we operate through education and trainings in this terms in order to grant them an active participation aimed to improve their technical knowledge on buildings maintenance, create self-sufficiency and managing independence as well as appropriation and strengthening local identity.
Projects aim to boost responsibilities of locals through direct considerations of matters and efficient answers, often misregarded due to lacking know-how or resources. It practically means to work hard from the motivational point of view, considered a real success since an entire village is spontaneously committed on project realization.
The most important programme has been realized with the involvement of more than 1500 listed volunteers, building a Dam-Bridge, coming from more than 20 villages, organized in working teams, supervised thank to a slight hierarchy run by eldests of the village. The common will for project realization raised wide approvals and spontaneous motivations.
Such as for the education centre for youngers in Tanaf, where some associations together with the local hospital strongly participated organizing every week teams of volunteers.
