The public themselves chose and implemented infrastructures on social affairs basically needed in project villages, supervising through sub-projects to operate the project. It is the kind of project which guarantees equal rights and opportunities regardless of sexual orientation in implementing the projects.
With strengthening the traditions of deciding through collective negotiations, socio-economic lives of rural populace have increasingly developed for the acquisition of rural roads and bridges, drinking and farming water, electricity and infrastructures on education and health.”
