On October 21 2015, a Participatory Rural Appraisal Seminar took place in Khallyjaly community of Masally rayon. The seminar was organized in the courtyard of the village mosque. Over 180 participants were already gathered prior we arrived in the community. Due to the rainy weather village residents had to install a big tent and bring chairs on their own expense. They also arranged a tea table for seminar participants. Although there are many problems in the community, they all welcomed us with joy, and attended the seminar till the end with patience. While talking about the history of the village, the elderly people and intellectuals said that first settlement in Khallyjaly community started back in XV – XVI Centuries and people originally came from Lankaran and South Azerbaijan. According to one assumption the meaning of the word “Khallyjaly” is “khalchaly (carpet)”. The other assumption is that it is related with the name of Khallyjaly village in South Azerbaijan. The community, which has been facing number of problems for many year, ranked the poor condition of roads as their primary priority. The activism of women was especially noticeable during the election of group members. Even during the counting of polls, the other women participants gathered around the AzRIP 2 staff and women candidates to observe the counting process. Once the process was over, the AzRIP 2 staff was seen of with grand applause.
