|Funded by||Blantyre Water Board|
Blantyre Water Board has upgraded the water supply infrastructure in Mbayani and has constructed 18 additional communal water points (KIOSKS) bringing the number of communal water selling points to 33.
Blantyre Water Board is to identify a management system that will improve billing and revenue collection, reduce levels of unaccounted water and sustainably expand water supply coverage in Mbayani and Blantyre .
While waiting for procurement and engagement of a private operator Hygiene Village Project was mandated to manage the eighteen (18) newly constructed Mbayani kiosks in the interim period between commissioning and the handover to the Private Operator in order to ensure that communities immediately start benefiting from the project. Hygiene Village Project was therefore engaged and involved in the project by carrying out facilitation services such as community mobilization, sensitization, and negotiations for access to land and promotion of sanitation and hygiene in Mbayani.
