Students from Mondial College present their video and win regional competition with the construction of their rescue unit
Students from the Mondial College, a technical polytechnic, won on Friday 17th March, 2017 the regional  competition for the construction of a rescue unit which was presented to the Red Cross Society. The competition is organized by Vakkanjers Pioneers, an organisation that promotes technical studies in The Netherlands. The regional final was held in Eindhoven. Amongst others, the students from the Mondial College Nijmegen were the most creative and innovative in making a rescue unit for helping injured people, who need care, at events. The students also presented their participatory video, which they developed during the last 2 months under guidance of Simon Koolwijk. Simon has now documented all his experiences and the procedures for self learning on how to make a video in an instructional hand out. Next year students, who will participate in the Vakkanjer Pioneer competition will use this handout for making videos that will show the construction of their technical projects. On the 15th June, 2017 the students from the Mondial College will participate in the national finals. Watch the photo of the winning team from the Mondial College, Nijmegen.

We are using video in our M & E system!

Simon started working with us to train grantees in participatory video. Amazingly, with the first training week participants produced 5 stakeholder videos of 5 minutes each, and had shared these in support of community dialogue about basic service improvements. We were all impressed with the empowering effect of participatory video. With Simon's recommendations, we have started using the video content in our M & E system (behavior change and service improvement results).
