I am so appreciative, I have learned so much within a short amount of time, I didn't want the course to end.

Experiential learning

In our programmes, we invite you to share your experience and relate your learning to real-world situations.


Education should never be top-down dissemination of knowledge. It must be dialogical, collaborative and problem-posing.


At the heart of our process is an understanding of the need for systematic social analysis, and the skills and tools to put this into effect in a participatory way.


Assignments are designed to take you through a learning process and build upon your skills and knowledge.
