Maza Tsaye Security Wall
With Maradi's rapid growth over the past 5 years, the property is increasingly feeling the pressure of urbanization, and the wire fences are not adequate barriers given the value of the woodlots and grazing possibilities so close to a crowded urban mass. A two meter high concrete block perimeter wall would provide appropriate security against such urban encroachment, as well as enhance the privacy and tranquility that the conference center is seeking to create. In addition, culturally a concrete block wall is seen as the sign of true property ownership, so it would remove the possibility of an urban land grab attempt by local authorities, something not that uncommon with land that has not been entirely enclosed. Finally, such a wall will encourage and protect further development of potential ministries.
