Ceelwaaq" is a divided city on the Somalia-Kenya border. The Somali portion is located in the southwestern Gedo region, where it is the seat of one of the region's seven districts. It is bordered by the Bardera and Garbaharey districts on the east, and the Somali-inhabited North Eastern Province to the west. The area is rich in camels, cows, sheep and goats. Most of the local population are thus pastoralists, and also engage in small business and trade. Today one thing that remains the highest priority for the residents and authorities is the renovation of the gravel Elwak main road that goes from the CBD to the bordering northern province of Kenya where they have close ties (mainly trade, education and ethnic relations). The deteriorating road has developed bumps and potholes which put community’s life into miserable during the road. The lately heavy rains made the road to develop marshes and swamps leading the sunk of pieces of land resulting the death of several people. During the rainy seasons, no vehicles can be driven within or to outside of the town which most of the time hinders the mobility, trade and emergency and life saving missions. After learning the DIALOGUE project, the Elwak authority and community is prioritizing the renovation of the main road to tackle these obstacles. The DIALOGUE project is a resource mobilization initiative by DRC that contributes 50% of the total cost of community and public project to create trust between Somali people and their government in the management of their own development The community and their authority are jointly campaigning for the following: • Backfilling the bumps and potholes • Developing proper drainage • Removing the unwanted plants hindering vehicle mobility The community and their authority gently appeal you to support them on this renovation initiative to better community life.
