TARA is pleased and proud to announce the publication of an attractive 68 page booklet on community rock art projects with a case study of its highly vibrant project on Mfangano Island, Lake Victoria, Kenya: Managing Community Projects: TARA and the Abasuba Community Peace Museum.

The book is loaded with pictures and with stories from many of the actors and players involved in TARA’s largest community project to date. Co-authored by Gloria K. Borona (TARA, Community Projects Manager) and Gladys Nyasuna Wanga (Former TARA Programme Manager), with a foreword by Alain Godonou (Director of EPA at the time), the book chronicles the genesis of the project, its implementation, its successes and shortcomings. Also highlighted are community project management principles / best practices and four other TARA community projects (Dabous, Niger; Kakapel, Kenya; Lokori , Kenya and; Kondoa, Tanzania). The production of this book was made possible through the support of EPA – Ecole Du Patrimoine African, in Benin with funds from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
