Community Awareness Creation
The purpose of this component is to “politicize” the Loita community . The idea is to increase community access to information to enable them to make informed decisions. Awareness is created through seminars, workshops and exposure visits.
Through awareness creation, the community is able to re-evaluate and utilize its own socio-cultural values, make itself informed, maintain unity, and strengthen information dissemination and sharing through perpetual news eating.
