One Village Transformed (OVT) - Bura

This project will empower the community by building on the existing community capacities, helping people understand the causes of their vulnerabilities and then develop strategies to address them. Empowered community groups, including the church, will engage in holistic transformation. The villages will start implementing prepared community plans including disaster risk reduction and church plans for holistic ministry. By the fourth to sixth year, the community would be expected to have capacity to improve its living standards by steering its vision and development goals in a sustainable manner. The project therefore proposes a number of objectives such as improved access to portable water and better sanitation for the villages and schools; improved affordable financial services; promotion of poultry production, environmental sustainability and disaster risk reduction. The project will strengthen the church to carry its holistic mandate. The project will start off by engaging the community through participatory processes and training community leaders on leadership to ensure community ownership and participation from the very beginning.
