More than 70 local people are employed by the King's Village Project. Between them they've helped develop a medical centre providing the first doctor in the district, have provided water and sanitation to in excess of 10,000 people, established a school and begun to develop a micro-enterprise initiative. Local people are involved fully in the planning, development and implementation of the King's Village Project. This includes taking part in needs assessments, volunteering their time to help build facilities and forming local groups to administer elements of the initiative.
