Theatre Overcoming the Language Barrier in Environmental Coservation
A thirty (30) minutes theatrical play will be developed to disseminate information on the dangers of desertification and land degradation. The play will be translated to be performed in four indigenous languages of Setswana, Afrikaans, Sesarwa and Seherero. The play will be performed in twenty villages by local youth artists who shall be trained on theatre skills. The project targets firewood businesses, borehole owners and aims to reach a minimum audience of eight hundred (800). It will run for twenty (28) weeks.

The aim of this project is to use edutainment to effectively sensitise communities of Ngwaketse West and Kgalagadi district on deforestation and land degradation. This aim will be achieved through the following objectives:
a) To develop a play on environmental conservation to be performed in twenty villages of Ngwaketse West Constituency and Kgalagadi district.
b) To translate the play on environmental conservation into Sesarwa, Seherero, Setswana and Afrikaans to solve the language barrier challenge.
