TOKA was only formally established in 2016, but the founders have 7 years of experience working with local communities in Tropoja on a wide range of different projects involving protecting and/or promoting environmental, social and economic interests in the region. During this time TOKA has earned the trust and respect of local people who form most of its active members, functioning as the platform from which rural communities can have an effective voice and development direction.
Our role will be to empower rural communities affected by env. degradation to develop and pursue sustainable livelihood opportunities. Our experts will contribute in delivering the workshop for developing a model and training on its promotion per photography, finalize the plan with communities, organize the public exhibition and lead the forum. We will also identify CSO and community members to participate in the practical workshop, study visit and final conference.
