APC-Associação Projeto Cidadão-Operation Salvage Picoco (OSP)


Picoco community is one of the the communities under the governance of Boane Municipal, Maputo Province with numerous social challenges and with the assistance of the APC – Associação Projeto Cidadão and support from its well wishers, some of these challenges are been taking care of. With a scattered and dispersed kind of settlement in a verse area of land, this community have numerous non-functional pumps with only one functional hand held pump and about 7 of them seen not working. That should say a lot about the water situation in this place with a population of about 200,000 people. And the sanitation situation is also nothing to write home about, all these are issues we as volunteers are looking at to see how we can support the organization and the community address some of these problems. From the WASH related issues, education, health and economic stability are the key main areas we shall be focusing our attention to and put some energies to see how we can help resolve some of them. We need your support in these three (3) projects we are coming up with which are as below;
I. Furnishing of the Escola Comunitaria El-Shaddai; a school established by the APC on 12th of Februrary,2015 to give children qualiative education in Picoco, with classroom furnitures (desks, chairs and tables),

II. Rehabilitation of the non functional hand pumps to reduce the pressure on the only working one which was built by the APC- Associação Projeto Cidadão after seeing the high demand for water as at that time the pump was dug.

III. The Picoco Community Sanitation Program, which is aimed at educating the inhabitants of the community on sanitationand hygiene, creating adequate waste disposal system and providing a clean environment to curb the spread of sickness/diseasesassociated with indiscriminate dumping/disposal of waste (project still on initiation phase).
