Lara Berk, graduated at Hogeschool In Holland Haarlem, did her graduation research in the first half of 2013 in Ghana. She studied our organization CPYWD and the main question she tried to answer was how to make the projects in the communities more self sustainable. Her most important recommendations:

– Make a distinction between junior and senior facilitators, make trainers out of senior facilitators.
– Be honest and clear to everyone. Work with clear (SMART) goals and start evaluating.
– Start giving ‘refreshment trainings’.
– Invest in the motivation of the facilitators (appreciation, livelihood and rewards).
– Invest in the relation between facilitators and the relation between facilitators and staff members.
– Start searching for a way to solve the future shortage of facilitators.
