Shikshan Prayog, translated into English means experiment in self-learning.
Based on the belief that people learn best from their own experiences
and from the experiences of their peers, SSP works towards building networks
of NGOs and women's groups through which peer learning processes are initiated
and sustained. The peer learning strategy ensures that ideas and innovations
are rapidly transferred. Here are some of the learning tools being used
by SSP and the women's collectives to nurture and transfer innovation.
The more these tools are used, the more they get refined and sharpened.
Melavas / Information
Fairs : Melavas or information fairs are festive
occasions which bring hundreds of women together to celebrate their achievements.
Here, women have an opportunity to showcase their achievements, share
their stories and address government officials.
of 5-10 villages are mini learning networks that keep the learning process
alive. Cluster level
activities bring together representatives
of women from 10-15 villages where they can voice their concerns and learn
from those who have already addressed problems in their own villages.
Study Tours :Study tours are usually intense learning experiences in which women travel together to visit and learn from innovative work of others. Study tours and exposure visits result in increasing the confidence of women, many of whom have never stepped out of their villages. Here link to note on CCD-SSP exchanges ?
