As part of the core activities of the EduCamp III project, the project team began opening dialogue with the Board of Trustees of both schools in order to begin the process of initiating the community participatory model. Representatives of the board of trustees came and discussed their ideas and their vision for the school and how they hope for the progress of the project to continue in the future.
Many topics were discussed during this meeting including the method of establishing a participatory model, methods of ensuring the sustainability of the initiatives, ways to achieve sufficient finance to support the project and its continuation, among other discussions.
Overall, the meeting was very fruitful, and many creative ideas were presented. The project team came away with the feeling that the project would be in good hands in the future.
