The basic purpose of engaging with the local community members was to identify the challenges faced by them and the feasible solution to overcome them. Moreover, this engagement facilitated in making the intervention/solution a local asset and encouraged community to take ownership of the solution. This is pivotal for the sustainability of the project and to create awareness among the community.
