Kenya&EU: Maasai activist advocates for participation in EU development projects

This is a recording from the Minority Voices conference, held in Budapest in May 2010.

In this recording:

Esther Somoire, executive director of CIWOCH, an organisation representing the interests of the Maasai community gives the perspective of a community-based organisation in Kenya when it comes to relations with the European Commission. Esther gives various reasons why the participation of community-based organisations (CBOs) in EU project planning and implementation is crucial. In this excerpt, she speaks about a hospital building project after which the beneficiaries did not have the feeling of ownership of the institution.
