Sustainable Development - Diversity 

Project description

In 2016, an IPP helped build Analli Cultural Center for the island of Heisa, providing a place for community members to increase their skills, and develop and protect their culture. This IPP will continue that work.

Participants will explore ways for the islanders to better market their crafts and connect them to wider market, allowing them to generate income and stay economically sustainable. They will investigate where the development of partnerships with like-minded organizations may help the Centre to expand its reach and services.

In order to make the best use of the current resources available in the island, there will also be a focus on waste reuse and upcycling, including composting organic waste, learning about sustainable agriculture and implementing permaculture systems.

Analli Cultural Center aims to tackle culture and community development from a traditional standpoint; continuing to grow the skills and expertise of the Heisa islanders and to be able to promote them to a wider audience. In the Kenzi Nubian language, Analli means 'to see’ or to be ‘enlightened’, encompasses the spirit that drives this cultural lighthouse.

Whilst working to ensure the project remains sustainable, participants in this IPP will learn how the community balances between tradition and modernity.
