First over....how do we behave as Facilitator???
Do not assume, however, that we can get prepared "once and for all." We facilitators are continually learning more and more ....... It is a never ending process, and we will be doomed to failure if we ever think we know it all and it has a big impact on how the Community gonna act.
When we start talking about community problems, and asking what their priority problems are, there will be a tendency to assume that we are there to…Continue
We would have wanted to fly to India and be part of the fun in the Global Learning Event, but fund constraints will not stop us from sharing with you our experience. Here are some lessons from PinoyC (this is our group's nickname). This is a compressed version of our journey so if you are interested to know more, give us a shout. The development of this presentation, is a journey and a wonderful realization in itself. Through the years, it felt like the group was going thinner and thinner…Continue
We discussed how facilitators from diffferent approaches facilitate and encourage communtiies to take action on issues of their concern and how community life competence approach can learn from others experiences and improve on it. 130 people shared in 10 different languages.

I use my How Matters YouTube channel to highlight portrayals of international assistance that inspire more nuanced conversations about the politics of global development and international aid. Frankly though, there’s not enough content to keep that page very active. Very few video-based products show people grappling with the realities of programming on the ground and the stories of grassroots change-makers too often remain…Continue

Without sounding ungrateful one wonders if aid agencies or development partners are as effective in helping Third World countries in their course towards sustainable development. In Swaziland it began as an emergency response where food aid is concerned, but it later became an annual event. Some communities have become perpetual beneficiaries of food aid despite having received good rains, farm inputs, etc. They simply will not apply any effort towards producing their own food. This has…Continue
