Construction works are underway to place a cobbled path in Uma village that leads from the entrance of the village to the center of the village

This community action envisages the construction of part of the main street by laying cobblestones in keeping with the local tradition in the length of 185 meters as well as the installation of new garbage containers where the population can separate plastic waste for recycling pickup and cleaning the public space at the entrance to Uma which used to be an illegal landfill.

In accordance with the goals of USAID’s Community Development Program, several local stakeholders from different spheres of activity were involved in the implementation of the action, contributing to the development and beautification of the village of Uma.
