Qoryaale Water Dam Rehabilitation
Qoryaale is a village of around 800 families, approximately 65km to the south of Burao city, in Somaliland. The population are mostly nomads where the livelihoods of the communities mainly depend on the livestock and merchandising commodities come from near cities like Burao. The business of the village is mainly containing of small shops, few stores and restaurants which are mostly led by women to manage the lives of their families. The Health and education services are available in the village; which are supported by both NGOs and Government. For the years of long recurrent droughts and pandemic of COVID19, Care International implemented several projects including distribution of unconditional and conditional cash transfers, water and sanitation hygiene kits to the crisis-effected communities in the village. Care also supported the two extension classes was added to the primary school of the village and trained the teachers of both primary and secondary schools as well.
Since Somaliland government named Qoryale village to be a district, also access to basic social services is now going back to normal but water is still remaining challenge. While there is no enough water points and increased number of residents of the village which contributes the demand of the water.
Therefore, the community requires water supply extension for community contribution which the VDC has already started to mobilize community to raise money for the project with support of CARE and Shaqodoon. There are also other community members work with them in the community needs and social activities. According to this community project, the Bulshokaab platform online is used to track the transactions of individual voluntary contribution to the project account. This will increase the transparent and accountability of the project contributions and the trust of the contributors.
