In the locality where we are planning to implement the project, there are no ongoing projects being undertaken by non governmental organizations. However, the regional and local governments are trying to address cultural development. To this end there are favorable conditions to carry out projects related to cultural diversity in the region. Any intervention in the area is inevitable as the government supports actors in the cultural diversity promotion sector. Hence, the intended project will be successful in this favorable condition with no and/or minimal obstacles to attain the objectives.
