Students of the Village of Matani Public School #2 in Akhmeta municipality advocated for the improvement of local infrastructure; in particular the system of potable water in the village needed renovation as there was a lack of water and its quality was not suitable for drinking. Students collected signatures of the community members and prepared a request letter addressing Governor of the village.

As the result of the students’ efforts the problem was solved quickly; a new water reservoir with filtration system was installed in the village.

“The problem of potable water in the village is solved, we community members couldn’t believe that such an important problem could solved by youth efforts,” said Bela Khokobashvili, community member.

The initiative was supported by USAID-funded Momavlis Taoba Project, which is implemented by PH International.
