Given the often limited capacity of most African states to address the needs of their populations, local communities must find ways to tackle many development challenges. For example, in Senegal, villagers have had to ensure a steady supply of water, construct health huts, and dispose of waste. As these problems have become more acute, new practices and structures are required. To effectively address different issues and problems requires a high level of community cooperation. This article explores the factors that give rise to community participation and specifically the role of non-formal education.
