The road and the community – Jolana’s third update

The road is now completed, self funded by locals and self build! Hurray! We initial said we wouldn’t give any funding as they had damaged the water pipes and until they were fixed we wouldn’t support them.

However, they have done such a great job and the pipes have been repaired – and now drinking water flows from all taps again. And in just 7 days they now have a road to hugely improve times for transporting of their bamboo products. And access in general. This shows when a community really wants to do something, they can!

Happy to walk in Aandhimul yesterday! And I’ve added some lovely pictures of the community in and around Aandhimul.
