How we plan to use community participation in developing the Ubrica Project: Co-creating with Kenyan Communities.

We have developed a community participation program called World Ubricoin Ambassador Program. The program is aimed at engaging community members in solving their problems through chapters.

A chapter is a group with members from a particular community. A chapter will be made of at least 13 people from a specific region. The main reason of developing chapters is from our understanding that knowledge is specific, and solutions to a certain problem should be specific. We know health is very poor in Kenya, but also we know other regions are worse than others. Coming up with a solution for all will be going against our principles. Each community have strengths and weaknesses so prescriptive interventions will not work. We talk of sustainable one health and in this theory a prescriptive intervention is not sustainable.

Community members knows better than people from outside that community. So a chapter in a specific area will be able to come up with solutions that are relevant and fit for that particular community considering what is locally available and what and their specific needs.

Co-creating with the chapters will help identify the specific problem in healthcare. Through the help of the Ubrica project we will then work together to solve it. An active chapter with at least 1000 chapter members will be legible for Retail Clinical Center or a Science and Technology Park for a chapter in the university or a chapter with a university.

The ambassadors will be responsible in bringing the members of the chapter together. We believe that the people joining the program already have a vision on how Ubricoin, Soko Janja and Ubrica Project will transform their community. So, the ambassadors will work to fulfil their vision on their community by working together with people in their community to change their situation.

This is your chance to do something in your community. Most of times we want to do something but we don’t know how. We have already provided you with a plan, you have the way to do it, your work is just implementing, and of course with the Ubrica office guidance you get to save lives and make your community a better place through the Ubrica Sustainable One Health Project.
