Setting Up And Training In A Grassroot Workshop

Some pointers based on my experience with working with rural and urban community members

Digital StillCamera


The key purpose of the training program is always, “how do we enable increased access to livelihood opportunities for the community.” Mapping and exploring their  outside environment, and their inner fears and insecurities. Understanding their skills and available resources as  a group is key to a successful setting up and running of a social enterprise.

objectives of the training are:

  • Developing mechanisms to identify problems, gaps , needs or challenges in their environment and to come up with practical solutions.
  • Identifying and articulating their individual skills, knowledge, passion, talent – whatever they can bring to the table
  • Ideas to put all available resources, land, capital and time to productive use of earning an increased income and reduce unemployment
  • Be able to initiate AND run a sustainable social enterprise. Take responsibility and ownership.

    Inspirational quote – Bill Drayton , Ashoka

    Social entrepreneurs are not content just to give fish or teach you how to fish. they will not rest until they have changed the fishing industry

The craziest you can do is -do nothing about it !!!!!!!

There is little doubt that climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. It affects all 7.3 billion of us. The Pope, Barack Obama and even Elon Musk have said we all ought to do our share to fix it. Yet most of us don’t know what to do or where to start.

Our friends at Republic of Change have come up with an interesting idea to get people involved by planting trees for $1 each. It’s a great way to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and they have some great perks for those who want to plant more than a handful of trees.
