Government Entitlements

We learnt that currently the village does not (despite efforts of the chief) receive all the government support to which it is entitled. It is not currently clear what additional support is available but not currently received, however the chief is of the opinion that there is no support to navigate through governmental bureaucracy.

Suggested next steps – consider ways to support the chief in liaising with local officials to clarify what support is available, so the chief can work toward ensuring that this is delivered. This may go some way to delivering the financial or technical support that is required to deliver other projects for the village, and should be one of main aims of Ben's visit in July.
