The community members presented the design propositions under the guidance of teachers for receiving support in WHH realization.

According to terms of the competition, the winner project will receive a site for land restoration and part of financing (up to 50% from the total cost) in the form of fuel, equipment, fence protection, etc. As the end of the competition the degraded land was given to school for the period of twenty years. Local community was mobilized for the project implementation by means of „khashar“ collective work and the school took up responsibility for the site on completion of works.
