Abstract or Summary
  • The newest pilot project at Tarangire National Park (TAR) is Income Generating Programs (IGP) where community groups organize themselves around an activity that earns income. TAR initiated the project by paying for ten members from each of the three existing community groups on the park’s northern end and fifteen members each from the two existing community groups in the park’s southern end to attend a business class on capacity building from September 24-29, 2012. This study analyzed the immediate impacts associated with the class on the three groups in the park’s northern end. The metrics used to measure impact were group information sharing by class attendants, changes in business practices, changes in opinions of TAR’s management, and changes in attitudes towards living next to TAR. These results were procured through qualitative case studies based on interviews and focus groups (n=51). It was hypothesized and supported that class attendants shared the information within their group, initial changes to business practices were made, villager opinions of TAR became more positive, and that attitudes towards living next to TAR improved.
