"Really enjoyable – best training I’ve been on in ages. Very well structured and rich with transferable ideas."
“The facilitator is extremely experienced, and most of what I learned in the course was through her mentions of her experience and practical examples. I really discovered that PhotoVoice had a much stronger social change dimension than I was expecting, and it got me to think more.”
