Criteria for project selection

The following criteria have been set for the selection of the project:

  1. Does the community receive inadequate government funding?

  2. Is the project based on a real local need and suggested by the local community?

  3. Is the project ongoing and long lasting?

  4. Is the project funded and/or constructed jointly with local people? (this type of engagement allows for a transfer of skills, ensures longevity and encourages the community to ‘own’ the project)
