This integrated project deals with a whole range of issues relating to poverty alleviation. Implemented by the local university and developed from a DFID strategy, it involves the provision of training, infrastructure improvement and maintenance, housing restoration and construction. Three of the projects have been identified as best practices, including the sanitation/community farm and the garbage amnesty projects. Implementation strategy is based on capacity building, micro-enterprise/job creation and safer communities. To date, many hygiene facilities hve been installed, such as showers and toilets, on top of the development of garbage collection and the regular street cleaning and maintenance.
