PLA Notes CD-ROM 1988-2001 6 The use of community theatre in project evaluation : an experimental example from Zimbabwe
ENDA-Zimbabwe (Environment and Development Activities), an indigenous Zimbabwean NGO, has been running a community woodland resource management project in Southern Zimbabwe since 1987. The project places an emphasis on community research and aims at a participatory framework in implementation. The following account relates to a workshop that was held at Mototi Township, the area where the project originated. Locally based project staff, a community worker and village researchers, facilitated the workshop, which had as its broad aim the creation of a piece of community theatre reflecting perceptions and concerns about the project and trees in general.
