Training in Igunga – juni 2016

While the Ecovillage project is going on now for more than a year, new groups are formed and engaged to be part of it. From 6 till 10 June, 82 farmers were trained to be a facilitator of their farmer field school groups. To create ownership with these groups, they are assisted with practical tools. During this week, role-plays were performed about the Pass on The Gift strategy. With great effort the facilitators showed the ritual from being a recipient to a donor. Between workshops about the cornerstones of Heifer, values and principles and Personal Leadership, the trainers challenged the facilitators to think creative. On big papers they got the assignment to draw metaphorical walls, doors and foundations of their houses: what will support, protect and energize them in engaging the members of their farmer field schools. Moreover, lessons were learned about the great importance of facilitating with recognition of the multiplier effect of sharing together. At the end, mister Shabani (one of the participants) smiled: ” Yes, when I come back, I will be the light to my community and spread out all the information”.
