The script of the week is from our latest script package on water integrity. It tells the story of a village in Malawi. Residents had been suffering from hunger, but came up with the idea of beginning an irrigation scheme. In the first years of the project, only a few community members benefited. The villagers struggled to find ways to share the water equally, and ensure that everyone could benefit. But they persevered with the project and succeeded. The script is a fictionalized account of how the villagers discussed their issues and made agreements on how to proceed.
