Some community groups and members are not directly involved in fishing but can influence the change that you need to happen. In this project we are engaging students and their teachers, sports and arts to raise awareness and secure wider public support. We organize school debates where students debate about fishing and gender inequalities, fishing and climate change, fishing and pollution of marine ecosystem, etc in the presence of their parents. We also have traditional dancing groups to entertain and convey the message. We support school teams through provision of sports gear and organization of class and inter and intra-school competitions. We also engage school administrations to promote school afforestation for which we provide seedlings.
