Participatory capacity building in NGOs (PLA Notes 48)

Drawing on the experiences of the National Association for NGOs (NANGO) in Zimbabwe, this paper shows that teaching participation to NGOs not only helps build capacity and improve community ownership of development projects, but increases interaction between groups and their ability to learn from other group's experiences.

Participatory Learning and Action is the world’s leading informal journal on participatory approaches. Guest editors provide up-to-the minute accounts of participatory approaches in specific fields. Since 1987, PLA has provided a forum for participatory practitioners – community workers, activists and researchers – to share experiences, reflections and methodological innovations with others, providing a genuine ‘voice from the field’.
