Community Needs Assessment Update:
Local Community children
Project Kesho began its on the ground work in East Africa at the end of May. Our program associate, Elliot Barnes, arrived in Tanzania to conduct Project Kesho’s Community Needs Assessment (CNA) of our target communities for our Summer 2007 programs, and to make the necessary preparations for the summer group. The CNA was designed to improve our organization’s understanding of both the complex nature of community needs and struggles, and the strengths present in these communities.

Elliot worked hard throughout the month of June conducting interviews, meeting with representatives of the target communities, local school and government officials, as well as working out the logistical details for the group that would follow in July.
our team included: Elliot Barnes, Ian and Cathi Barnes, Amie
Ptak, Matthew Watts, and Lynn Champlin. We also worked with
local community member, Abbas Sanga, who translated for us and helped
us make community connections.
