It will raise awareness and distribute fire fighting equipment in the villages of Artesia, Leshibitse, Ramotlabaki, Oliphant Drift and Dikgonnye in Kgatleng district.
Bakgatla like other tribes in Botswana live off the land, keep livestock, do arable farming and depend on ecosystem good and services. The theatrical production will be use as a vehicle to enhance livelihood activities through management of veld fires.
