A $1.9 million OFDA (Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance) grant (including a $413,000 matching) will assist almost 38,000 tsunami survivors by allowing us to:
- increase access to safe drinking water by rehabilitating or constructing 60 water points using paid community labor and skills. This will also provide cash for work for 1,000 older youth workers and others as part of the livelihood interventions through a "cash for work" program.
- improve sanitation conditions by constructing or rehabilitating 300 latrine facilities with paid community labor (part of the cash for work program for 1,500 older youth and other workers)
- repair or construct buildings, bridges and facilities as part of 60 civic works projects with paid community labor (part of cash for work program for 1,000 older youth and other workers)
