The end would be the creation of a new values and a systematic and strategic manner to amplify local voices, create platform, network for skill acquisition for the youths and women via pressing new demand to the government and constituency representatives ahead of the 2019 election; unlike old norms where restless ghetto youths and women sell their votes and become social vices for political elites.
The project will adopt a participatory but disguised observation methods:
- move and live in the ghetto/slum area for 1/2 month, have flatmates/observers/field officers who would live in the area as a local; interact (guided by a daily task routine) with targeted persons, age grades, business, chieftains and social groups. this would enable the observers have first-hand experience of what the locals experience, understand the social, environmental, political and cultural trends; but are however conditioned to think solution while un-interrupting existing experiences at the first instance.
