Community Awareness Creation

Project Description

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.

Strategies & Approaches

The success of awareness creation initiatives can be attributed to the following innovations:
  • Appreciating understanding and starting 
from what the community already has 
and knows.
  • Involving the community in the process 
of learning by using relevant and appropriate participatory skills
  • Promoting social organization by developing local grassroots linkages
  • Promoting civic participation and engagement
