CAMEPs participation was primarily through the Low Income Users Unit. This unit had seen its profile (and professionalism) increase markedly over the previous few years. It liased with 37 Water Committees, created to manage the water service, which involved the leaders of all primary organisations in the community (i.e., political parties, churches, youth groups, networks of notables, etc.). These managed the finances of the water sales and smoothed occasional conflicts. With a margin obtained from selling water, they financed small collective infrastructure projects (playgrounds, meeting rooms, footbridges, wastewater channels, bathing facilities, etc.), enhancing and reinforcing their legitimacy. Typically they also received training in financial and accounting techniques.
