Community documents traditional knowledge

The book details the medicinal and healing powers of plant-life in Siwai.

The Kainake Project started off as an initiative designed to connect the local communities, engage with the people and educate them through community-oriented programs.

As a recipient of funds from the UNDP’s Small Grants Programme, the project has managed to establish a 75-hectare conservation zone, planted 600 vanilla vines and established a school to teach traditional cultural values and a resource centre for skills training.
