New Delhi, India – A team of 6 potential trainers underwent the pilot training of the IRHR Curriculum for Grassroots Beneficiaries. This curriculum is a specially designed and lighter version of the full IRHR Curriculum created by APC. It is tailored towards the needs and requirements of the rural and peri-urban beneficiaries in India.
Niki Shah, Rajat Kumar, Pawas Suren and Rishi Jain of the DEF Research Team designed this curriculum.
The modules of the curriculum were created using the principles of Participatory Rural Assessment/Appraisal (PRA) and Participatory Learning & Action (PLA) with help from Ms. Saba Pandey of the DEF CIRC Team.
The intention of conducting a pilot training was to assess the quality, delivery and relevance of the curriculum content. This is the first step in the finalising the curriculum that would be delivered to the beneficiaries. A workflow of the curriculum development is given below.
