Figure 1.1 and 1.2 were taken during the site survey of the irrigation channel in the very beginning of project. At the time of survey we conducted a small meeting involving the beneficiaries and explained what the public have to contribute in terms of laborers and the support they will be getting from the Government (materials and guidance), with the consensus of all the beneficiaries, we have appointed a site supervisor and made an undertaking letter with the public mentioning the terms and conditions to complete the project on time.
Fig. 2 the gewog monitoring committees went to monitor the project and we found large number of beneficiaries were busy engaged in carrying out the work. They have also collected huge amount of local materials like sand and stones at site. The public were busy constructing a wall in the place where there are small landslides; they have also done with HDPE Pipe setting up work. It was good to see that different age group was engaged in work and elder people giving advice to the younger ones. We have also seen some students helping their parents during their summer break in carrying out the work.
