Prototyping Phase 2020 - 2022
From 2020 to 2022, we piloted a capacity-building methodology that aimed to equip participants involved in community-based food initiatives, in Zimbabwe, with the skills and knowledge to produce participatory video proposals. Through this phase, we developed facilitation resources that were tailored to the unique needs of our participants and supported participatory learning.
Over the course of the prototyping phase, we engaged with approximately 70 individual participants from 13 NGOs and 30 CBOs. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, we were able to provide remotely-facilitated online workshops that were accessible through Zoom and WhatsApp. These workshops were designed to foster small learning circles, allowing participants to collaborate and engage with one another in a supportive environment.
We are proud of the impact that this prototyping phase has had and look forward to continuing to refine and share our approach.
