USER REVIEWS OF THIS PUBLICATION
It is okay
Gabriel Ole Tuke
Its a good programme if it includes and embraces the marginalised rural poor [grassroots challenges]. I would proposal a model where a revolving fund is afforded so that the marginalised groups could access it , build decent accommodation and payback the cost of materials only to sustain the programme.
