- The Youth program will be engaging with a theater group again in 2013. The group will be out conducting their plays in the communities during CCF workshops and forums. The theater group performs play’s that encourages interactive learning from the Actor’s to the Audience, also a bit of Street Theater to add creativity. This year the Theater group will also share with the participants the tools of theater that can be used for advocacy in community advocacy work. Theater is a powerful tool and it reaches the audience quicker. It is easier to receive the information and the discussion generated after the performance are beneficial as more than one aspect of the situation can be discussed”
