Community leadership: an important factor for the engagement of communities in education

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Given the importance of community engagement in driving and shaping education at the grassroots level, the presentation will begin with an overview of the framework and factors that lead to true community engagement. Then it will present the findings of a qualitative study conducted by Catholic Relief Services in Burkina Faso on community leadership as a first step to sustainable community engagement.

These findings indicated that 2 main categories of factors influence community leadership. The favorable factors are religion, tradition, education, development actors’ interventions, political power and economic power. The limiting factors are tradition, illiteracy, poverty, gender and modern political power. These factors are interdependent and, depending on the intervention area and/or the leaders, can be complementary.

These findings are a good framework that will be the basis for the design of a sustainable community engagement strategy and a tool for next interventions in rural areas in Burkina Faso.
