On the 25 of May Africa Unite embarked on capacity building initiative by training Peer Educators and staff on a new way of learning from our experiences, systematization. In total 20 people attended and participated in this training. The programme for the first day training session was as follows:
- What is systematisation?
- Experience, Knowledge ad Action
- Why systematise experiences, what are the benefits ?
- Who is involved ?
- Institutional Support
- Systematisation Process – designing/development of a systematic which goes in line with the next step
- Developing a framework
- Next Steps
The ultimate goal of awareness and understanding of systematization Process as well as develop a draft proposed framework were both achieved.
The follow up meeting was held on 14 June with the aim of further working on a particular draft to come up with a detailed Framework and activity plan for the systematization process. The Outline of Programme for the Day was as follows:
1.Recap and Summarise
