In Community, Many Hands Make Work Light!
By Konkankoh Joshua
The New Year has started off with a new phase of communal spirit at Ndanifor Permaculture Eco-Village (NPE).
On 6 January 2014 out in Bafut the local community of Alegenwi ( the Quarter around NPE) showed their support by clearing and digging the road leading down to the Eco lodge. This will benefit the local people and enable building materials to be brought onto the building site.
During the night the town crier had gone through the community to rally a work force and by 6 am, 45 youth, men and women appeared with hoes and cutlasses.
Singing together the work song hru-jay and with the development committee supervising, the job was completed in under 2 hours.
We spent the rest of the morning planning the next community action, the Eco village water catchment, and celebrating the success of our BWC-Alegenwi joint action.
