Community Outreach by PDev II-Trained Youth

I first began these activities five years ago. I was trained in one of the first training programs in 2011 for community engagement through the participatory theatre, mobile cinema and young leader initiatives. I was already engaged in community awareness and theatre in my own community association. With PDev II we took both and combined them, it’s a contribution to development in our country and also to reduce violent extremism in our community. We have undertaken these activities all around Niger, even including in the refugee camps where I trained youth in the techniques of participatory theatre.
