Hi Janissa

Phil and a group of wonderful volunteers have put together a users guide for community empowerment.

There are many good ideas presented in a very accessible manner. And if English is not the first language for community facilitators,
translations into other languages are available as well.

We really appreciated that you shared your work and look forward to
hearing more.

All the best

I often don't have time to keep the blog current with full details. And because of poor connectivity, information from the village is often delayed. But, I will try to answer any questions you have.
