Introduction

Part of our endeavor is to form friendships that enable collaboration on climate resilience activities. For this, LOABOWA kind and structures, get together to deliberate on resilience projects that address this in low income and disadvantaged communities.

Projects will operate within the following boundaries: cost effectiveness, locally available resources, gender inclusive, accommodate indigenous knowledge, address the needs of the community, among other things that put the communities first.

Brief for volunteers

(Start by signing up as a volunteer, using our volunteer form).
Before installing the resilience projects, volunteers will begin with the design briefs and video scripts that show how to install the ‘solution’. They will then go ahead to install it, and taking a video recording of the activity. This will be made available to the public on our ‘impact’ page.
(we will start with the preliminary stages of the project that don’t pose a challenge to social distancing in view of covid-19).
Once this is done, they will be encouraged to go ahead and identify communities that need the ‘solution’, starting with those that need it most, and take it to them. The volunteers will need to be resourceful because these projects will require resources. They will therefore need to approach potential sponsors (who include LOABOWA ltd and subsidiaries) in order to build the capacity required to deliver the projects.

Include any challenges foreseen in the building project. Make sure to use information on already existing warka Towers for your design brief (

Concurrent with the design brief stage, is a script writing stage.

For this, we will be accepting scripts from anyone who has skills in video production. What is expected is only a brief write up of how volunteers will go about the video production of building a warka Tower. Make sure to use information and/or videos on already existing warka Towers for your script (
with proper citation
). The author doesn’t have to be part of the team that does the video production or actual building of the warka tower. However, they will be considered first as directors of the production.
