Improvement of Access Road to Kaseye

The access road from the Lufita turn-off to Kaseye is not paved. It gets in very bad condition during the rainy season (November – April). We are collaborating with Engineers without Borders student chapters to come up with improvement plans and supervise the implementation. The special stretch from the Chinunkha turn-off to Kaseye, a bit less than a kilometer, is the worst part, because there are some slopes where the rainwater keeps eroding the road. Our collaboration with the ETHOS program of the University of Dayton resulted in two teams of students in the past years, the first one to perform a detailed elevation survey and the second one to implement some test stretches of road and drainage improvement. Based on the performance of these stretches during the rainy season, decisions will be made for the improvement of the entire road stretch.
