Restore x 76 Houses within 18 months including related required essential services;
Within 18 months to have upgraded the Water and Waste Water infrastructure to the RAESP standard;
Within 24 months to have restored the community roads (special request due to the project’s delivery track record); and

Employing a strengths-based approach, the project will build on existing community capability and resilience as a means to provide stability and security for children, individuals and families in their endeavours to deal with five critical areas.
