During the KYATTO NA, it was realised that the communities are not informed on their rights and obligations and the elite want to exploit them after one participant had asked if it were right for three people to acquire a land title on their behalf since they do not have the money to process a land title for the village dwellers. The Hon. Minister Madada, vehemently rejected the proposal by the village members to register land in names of three people. He advised that, each community member or family is required by law to register their own land. No short cut.

Why the project on "FOLLOW THE LAW"
Right from the skit of the KYATTO NA, it was realised that if citizens participate in the law making processes at different level, they will be better governed and thus promote the democratic principles in their different country context.
