Participatory management in public extension services (PLA 45)
Save the Children, a British NGO, has been operational in Morocco for 40 years, including establishing and running a school for disabled children. This paper charts the progression of the school, from originally exporting a European model of 'special' schools to one that was more geared to Moroccan needs and requirements.
Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods.
