Machakilha Road Being Cleared

Earlier in the month, News Five took you to Machakilha Village, a remote community in Toledo District. The story focused on the hardships of students who have to trek for hours and miles in order to attend classes in another village. In the story, News Five accompanied the students as they set out before the break of dawn to the P.S.E. centre in Corazon. The main challenge that the students are faced with every year is the fact that there is basically no clear road, leading in or out of the village- just a recognizable pathway. The Ministry of Works has begun working on creating an access road to the village. Minister of Education Patrick Faber says that this was previously discussed with the Prime Minister.

“We did have this discussion with the Prime Minister and we did look at what can be done in that area. I am not certain or what the details are insofar as the work is being executed now but that agreement was made. The Prime Minister says yes we can look at that situation. So I am not surprised that some movements are already happening.”
