Strengthen capacity for Kwaio leaders in villages surrounding the Kwainaa`isi Cultural Centre to deliver conservation and biodiversity projects that emphasize Kwaio traditional knowledge, customary stewardship and project and financial management skills developed through a previous small grant. The project encourages community members to expand on the number if plants whose medicinal and traditional uses are documented through video recordings to ensure that local knowledge is kept alive for current and future generations. A Kwaio community association will be setup and formalized to take on future work and engagement. This will place the Kwaio community at the forefront of conserving their natural resources.
