Practical Action Southern Africa is involved in Public PrivateÃ¢â‚¬Â¨Partnership deals with local authorities in the city.Ã¢â‚¬Â¨Ã¢â‚¬Â¨The programme’s main thrust is to instill a sense of local ownership in programmes such as brick molding, waste management and plumbing.Ã¢â‚¬Â¨The local authority is responsible in the implementation of the project.
The projects are being undertaken in the high density of areas ofÃ¢â‚¬Â¨Sakubva’s Ward One to five and are meant to improve the livingÃ¢â‚¬Â¨standards of residents.
Brick molding group leader, Malex Mauya, said his project had been a success.
“Brick molding is doing well because we acquired a tender in ArdaÃ¢â‚¬Â¨Transau where families from Marange are being relocated. We areÃ¢â‚¬Â¨supplying one million bricks. Our challenge is transport which is veryÃ¢â‚¬Â¨expensive, but we can`t complain because we are earning a decentÃ¢â‚¬Â¨income to feed our families,” said Mauya.
Speaking at a Public Private Partnership stakeholders meeting, Senior Town Planner, Richard Simbi, expressed his gratitude for the work ofÃ¢â‚¬Â¨Practical Action.
“We appreciate the work that Practical Action is doing to reduce poverty through livelihood sustenance projects whichÃ¢â‚¬Â¨are environmentally friendly,” Simbi said.
Practical Action Southern Africa started its operations in MutareÃ¢â‚¬Â¨four years ago and its programmes are bankrolled by the European UnionPost published in: News
