PLA Notes CD-ROM 1988-2001 2 Sharing our limited experience for trainers: Participatory Rural Appraisal or Participatory Learning methods
MYRADA was introduced to the PRA/PALM method in 1989 at a 5-day camp conducted for the staff of its Microwatershed Project at Gulbarga. This was followed by another workshop at Talavadi Project where senior staff from all MYRADA projects participated. Since then the method has been used extensively in every area of MYRADA’s interaction with the people. Since this method integrates well with MYRADA’s overall approach, it took off faster than expected. During 1990-1991 the thrust of MYRADA’s PALM/PRA programme has been on rapid exposure, fostering innovation, building up teams, analysing experiences and constantly upgrading skills.
