In the outskirts of Kandahar City, the Sub-District Seven manager, wakils, and residents of Sub-District Seven worked together to identify, develop, and implement three community stabilization grants (CSGs). This week, residents of Noor Ahmad, Naik Mohammad, Akhunzada, and Haji Habibullah villages signed three CSGs in the Sub-District Seven manager’s office. The grants will fund 1,032 meters of drainage construction and 991 meters of road graveling, and build 35 concrete slabs to be used for drainage coverage. The stability initiatives will provide targeted community members with approximately 3,600 person-days of employment. The CSGs are part of USAID’s Local Governance and Community Development (LGCD) project’s larger initiative in support of Hamkari de Kandahar Lepara, GIRoA’s plan to improve local governance in Kandahar City.
