    Participatory community enumeration is an efficient way to gather information about urban communities and involve residents in the data-gathering process. This information can help to plan improvements and neighbourhood developments. This script shows the efforts of an NGO to empower several communities in Abuja. The NGO uses community enumeration to help citizens direct funds to the most desperate sections of their communities.

    This is a prize-winning script from our recent scriptwriting competition on the topic of healthy communities, and was written by Oluwakemi Aduroja from Network News 24 TV in Abuja, Nigeria. It is based on interviews with community residents in Abuja.
