The community provided temporary space for the office and has committed to providing a permanent building for the PDA/Tongo Fields Office. Funds from the US Agency for International Development (USAID) will fund renovation of the building, staff, and equipment to enable the program to succeed. The community has elected an Executive Committee and is poised to establish an operational plan.
