Resilience & Nutrition Security

Large sections of the water mains system have been destroyed or in some cases one of the belligerent parties prevents access to water for others. Drinking and utility water availability has decreased by 40% which has a negative impact on hygiene, health and agriculture – partly dependent on irrigation. PIN therefore helps the communities to make alternative sources operational.

 We are primarily digging wells for which in cooperation with local authorities, we provide generators, pumps and other necessary equipment. People pay small financial contributions for the water that they draw to cover fuel costs for powering the generator and minor maintenance. PIN also participates in provision of waste disposal services and employs people in cleaning activities.

Capacity Building of Local Councils and NGOs

Capacity Building of Local Councils and NGOs

To increase the capacity of local civil society to resist long-term crisis and be able to provide basic services and assistance to local people, PIN trains the local partners and authorities in terms of project management (water management, monitoring of the educational system, etc.), financial management, transparency and PRWe provided extended training for seven local councils, and another two received small grants to implement their activities. More than 40 local councils have been trained in the technical workshop, the PCM and financial management in shorter courses. Currently, we are mapping local NGOs, for which we are preparing a similar program.
