Water Project in Jakusko
ADfB Assisted Rural Water Supply Project in Jakusko Town, Yobe State

The African Development Bank (ADfB) assisted rural water supply and sanitation is a two-phased programme comprising of the hard component which entails the provision of the water and sanitation facilities in communities across the states and the soft component that involves the training of the community members on sustainability of the facilities provided.

In August, 2016, Kanem-Borno Human Development Association (KABHUDA) was contracted to execute the soft component through a well planned and articulated strategy of capacity building programme starting from the training of 24 Master Trainers who in turn, step down the training to train a total of 162 local government WASH implementers in Damaturu, Potiskum and Garin Alkali. Following that, a community based training was conducted in favour of 10000 WASHCOM (WASH local community members) spread across 1000 communities which cut across 15 LGAs (Local Government Areas) of Yobe State, Nigeria.

After three months of the community-based training, a follow-up visit was also conducted in six communities across three LGAs.

Seventy six (76) policy makers including 4 Yobe state executive council members were trained on the role of policy makers on WASH sustainability.
