3. Challenges
i).  Drought; where drought and consequential famine effects are deeply embedded in the area such that it has practically affected every fibre of schools and community development activities; possible action- school feeding program.
ii). Slowness in implementation of CDF funds where it’s required to complement the other TAS financially; possible action; Enhanced consultation with area MP.
iii). Overwhelming school needs making it difficulty when it comes to prioritizing the needs some needs are urgent but in terms of importance not and others are important and not urgent; Possible action- Strategic plans in each trust.
iv). Adjustment of chase bank:  Account opening process; more forms and signs. This has caused sour delay in bank opening for the four trusts.
