Arts and Crafts as Complementary Activity in the Community Outreach Programme
Arts and Crafts as Complementary Activity in the Community Outreach Programme
The goal of the project is to demonstrate to the surrounding communities of the Rio Bravo Conservation Area how the conservation of the area and its biodiversity, together with involvement in alternative activities besides slash and burn agriculture, can provide tangible benefits to them. This primary goal could be achieved while at the same time, two other direct objectives would be accomplished: a) to encourage the Arts and Crafts Group to utilize sustainable resources in their community and immediate environment to produce crafts for sale to obtain additional income for their families and to improve their standard of living; b) to provide application of skills learned in the small business training already obtained by the group members.
