Community participation

20090715_2 “ Great job done at  the appropriate time”   

This picture shows, villagers got together and cleaning an abandoned Well in a village called Kudamunaikkal in the JEN  project site.  This well seems to be a drinking water well which was not used by anyone for more than two years.

JEN organized and conducted   Capacity building workshops of Community based Organizations on different topics.  Through meetings, project staff support for these Organizations to commune and help them to improve skills of leadership, communication, administration, management, planning, marketing and reporting.  Psychosocial support/activities also carried out at the same time. 
As a result of this, we are now able to see big changes in their day to day life. 

By way of express their change of mind they did the above mentioned great job.  They got together and cleaned the well with their own expenses. 

I consider the above “Job” done by the community is a good example to everyone.
