Participatory Training Tools on Gender and Livelihoods

This training tool-kit on gender and livelihoods designed and developed by ANANDI is meant to engender and deepen the understanding of the goals of projects that focus on women farmer such as the ones being delivered by the National Rural Livelihoods Mission. The tools individually and the tool-kit as a whole are examples of guided facilitation where space for critical reflection and lateral learning is created in forums for women farmers. Through the training exercises and action following them, the pilotseekstoemphasisethatcollectivesolidarityand the emergence of women leaders will lead to a cadre of women who are committed to gender equality as a goal.

Women Farmers: Rights and Identity is a training toolkit which helps facilitators at the cluster level, Self Help Groups (SHGs) at village level, committees of women and members of Women's Farmer Clubs to build their understanding on the issues of gender and livelihoods. We hope that this toolkit helps practitioners in the field to trigger these processes in their work.
