The Otesha Project is a grass-roots non-government not-for-profit organisation dedicated to educate children/youth about sustainable consumption and constructive civic/community participation. Otesha means 'reason to dream' in Swahili. Initiated in Canada, its work & influence have spread to the UK and Australia.
The main delivery format is through a comedic skit, 'An Hour of Choices' performed in schools reached by bicycle tour. This is complemented by workshops and a publication 'From Junk to Funk', shared under a creative commons license on the Otesha (Canada) website.
