A facilitator’s guide on participatory approaches

ToolkitSunday shares this guide on “how to facilitate participatory processes with multiple stakeholders” by D. Bradley and H. Schneider of the Voluntary Service Overseas.

The benefits of participatory approaches can only be felt if all those involved have a common understanding and set of expectations. This guide, designed for volunteers, partner organisations and staff, is based on VSO’s experience on promoting participation. The authors hope that it will also prove useful to the wider development community. The guide is divided into three parts, which are available as three separate PDF files.

Founded in 1975, WHY is a leader in the fight against hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world.

WHY is convinced that solutions to hunger and poverty can be found at the grassroots level. WHY advances long-term solutions to hunger and poverty by supporting community-based organizations that empower individuals and build self-reliance, i.e., offering job training, education and after school programs; increasing access to housing and healthcare; providing microcredit and entrepreneurial opportunities; teaching people to grow their own food; and assisting small farmers. WHY connects these organizations to funders, media and legislators.

At WHY, we envision a world without hunger and poverty. If we can shift the prevailing viewpoint on why hunger and poverty exist, then we can influence the policymakers and put an end to this human tragedy.
