Challenge

The remote location of the community means they cannot access facilities provided as for those in cities. They have felt abandoned by various authorities and are only considered relevant only in election times. Due to lack of many of these facilities in the villages, there is an increased rural to urban migration that promises no offer of employment, which now makes crime to be on the increase.

Solution

It will reduced unemployment, as provision of basic amenities, including water, will help encourage youths and able-bodied villagers to stay on the farm and practise agricultural production, thereby reducing hunger and discouraging people going into criminal activities, eradicating poverty and malnutrition, water-borne diseases and reducing crime.

Long-Term Impact

Rural to urban migration will be discouraged. Able-bodied youths and adults of farming age can stay back and engage themselves in agricultural production and other available skills, helping to lower unemployment rate, solving crime increase and eradicating poverty.
