1. What is the change that you are trying to bring about and why is this important.

La culture est une chose importante pour tout être humain. Ainsi, l’homme se définit par rapport à sa culture. Force est de constater que, de nos jours, les hommes (africains) se détournent petit à petit de la culture au détriment de la culture des occidentaux. Ce qui conduit à une acculturation, une perte des valeurs. Nous parlons de moins en moins nos langues locales et nous fréquentons de moins en moins les personnes âgées afin de bénéficier des histoires des connaissances liées à la culture.

2. Describe your main approaches or strategies to achieve these changes and why you think they will be effective.
