Community engagement lies at the heart of any CSO’s work.
But how can you engage a community effectively from the very beginning – and how can you keep the community meaningfully engaged throughout your intervention? This course shows you how you can introduce yourself and your initiative to the community, formally and informally. It guides you through various techniques for mapping a community, some of which are PRA-inspired.
It shows you how you can plan together with the community by using prototyping and focus group discussions. And it explains various practical ways of maintaining two-way feedback loops and get the community to evaluate your CSO’s performance.
