Working successfully with a school community requires partnership. Our methodology included a seminar with stakeholders from County Administration, the Education and Agricultural Ministries, the village chief and deputy, school head teachers and staff and community representatives. Additionally we held a community meeting for the local people which was attended and supported by the stakeholders so they could understand the plan and roles that they signed up to.
A group of 10 clergy and members of their congregation are also now an integral part of the partnership. They will be encouraging involvement in the training groups and motivating the community to engage in achieving a more sustainable future in this rural area.
