Education, Conservation, a Way to Sustainable Development
Education, Conservation, a Way to Sustainable Development
The project aims at sensitising the community about the importance of acknowledging and conserving natural and cultural heritage found in Manyana. Graffiti made on the rock art in the area poses a danger to the cultural heritage of the place as it defaces the art and ruins the overall aesthetics of the place. The education and conservation of the site will allow the community to sustainably utilise the natural resources within the place and accrue benefits from tourism ventures.

An educational workshop will be conducted, and this will focus mainly on students and out - of school youth of Manyana. The principle is for them to benefit from the conservation of the natural resources within their area and improve their livelihoods. Through exchange and sharing of information and ideas they will be able to learn about tourism ventures activities and the required conservation management skills. This will promote a feeling of ownership of the resources and help them accrue benefits from the sustainable utilisation of natural resources.

Project Characteristics and Results
Planning non gef grant
Firstly, the project need to be sustainable and the livelihoods of the local community improve through initiatives brought forward and that means various funders be engaged for sustainability.
Policy Influence
It is important for people to understand why certain policies are implemented in their environments. The workshop was therefore meant to sensitize people on the importance of the natural and cultural environment around them and how they can benefit from such. Until the local people understand and appreciate what happens around them the policies formulated and implemented will never be relevant. Basically people should be taught and should be part of the policy formulators or rather have a say on what concerns them.
