Incredibly project! How do you keep your young people engaged and motivated? One of the communities' that we work with most active leaders are young people. Nevertheless, I believe the are currently experiencing fatigue. Have you experienced this before?

Also, take a look at our project 7e and tell us what you think of our model for participatory design. Are there ways to make it more appealing to young people?

Hi Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO) ! I've visited Kibera and it was a turning point in my life. It would a special place in my heart. Have you heard of the Kilimanjaro Initiative? You should look into them. They run a few activities for youth in Kibera. We also serve underserved communities through our project. Our strength is in engaging the communities that we serve every step of the way during disaster recovery efforts- in that sense, it reminds me of the work you are hidiung. Take a look at our model Let us know what you think / if you have any recommendations on how to strengthening our community building component. How do you keep your community member continuously engaged and self-motivated? Fatigue is a real symptom of community organizing and we are always looking for fresh ideas to keep our constituents enthusiastic.

Aline SEJOURNE Thanks again for your thoughtful response. For us it is just as important to honor the diversity in the process. We're really excited to engage the community as we start thinking about the toolkits. One thing we thought about was introducing surveys at the end of every workshop that offers technical assistance or new information to find ways to rank their level of importance. This can be a way for us to begin to plant seeds and have those most involved shed light on what information is most valuable. We appreciate your input and can't wait to get to be able to materialize these guides. Please do not hesitate to share any additional examples you come across.
