Sheikh Qassem was one of PY’s IM who received training in Mediation, Community Initiatives, and Consensus Building during the Habeel Jabr training. Sheikh was very active during the training and after the completion of the training he was very excited to apply the skills and knowledge he had acquired during the training to his community and as a result led a voluntary social initiative within his community in Habeel Jabr District.
After the training he requested to meet with Alasalah and Almahekb (Upper and Lower) villagers to take initiative to repair the public road. Using the skills he acquired during the training, villagers agreed on voluntary work to repair the road from Alasalah to Almahekb. They began fixing some places that had been ruined, they leveled Alasalah Road that had been damaged by a river, repaired the side of Almikhrat, and put concrete on the side of the road and raised a wall in the other side for Almikhrat in Alsilah and Almahrabah.
The community also agreed to continue the work to maintain road safety and prevent village isolation; they requested support from PY to maintain the road in the future through the community initiatives grants.
