The civil engineering company “Licogi” has hidden the housing designed for its workers and their families behind a wall of containers. Most of the men are away from home, working on major building works across the country. It’s the women who organise life in the community. Since the rainy season is close at hand, new problems of leaking buildings, water drainage and insalubrious homes are coming up once again. Delegations of women regularly visit the firm’s headquarters to call for the buildings to be renovated. But every time, the delegation gets sent home.
