Kishapu District

Kishapu District Project

TCRS intervention is based on water and sanitation, gender justice, human rights and good governance, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and environmental management. The direct groups involved in these interventions are village councils, water committees, land committees, disaster committees, social welfare committees, environment committees and Public Expenditure Tracking System (PETS) committees, water user groups and special groups such as people living with HIV and AIDS, People With Disabilities, youth, boys and girls in schools. TCRS also trains village animators who stand as a bridge between TCRS and the communities the organisation serves.

TCRS collaborates with the Government on sharing expertise by using government employees on secondment basis. This includes occasional hiring of trainers on environmental management, good governance, human rights, education and water and sanitation.
