Lessons Learned

Explanation
poor services in health and education in the local community level (see photos and separate implantation report)
rigidness of local leaders in community service provision, example in Makuyuni executive officer stop us to interview community and Hale ward WEO refused to work with TASCO if we engage citizen in the project, he wanted us to interview leaders only
Citizen have solution for their problems, but they are not listened by local leaders
promises of Member of parliaments and councilors are not fulfilled

Challenges

ChallengeHow it was overcome
working with local leaders in this project, some of them turned to be enemy Seek assistant from District council, lobbying and telling them how the project will help to improve education and health services in their area
Some of interviewed people claimed for paymentWe explained to them, that they are part of the project and we implement it for their own benefit and the entire community
