An inspiring one-to-one training in Remote Participatory Video

It´s been an inspiring one-to-one training on Remote ParticipatoryVideo for Monitoring and Evaluation by Facili2Transform. Amazed about the power of video making and storytelling to learn from and to empower users and aid workers/managers, to increase the visibility of the aid organizations´ work, and to advocate for our cause. We all know, reports are boring, and in most cases, remain on the shelves without a proper organizational learning. VIDEO HUMAN STORIES uplift users, touch emotions and help to emphatise with the people we work for... All this in only a 8-minutes movie!!! Just love it!!!

Simon Koolwijk, you´re a wonderful facilitator, great film maker, and you´ve been very generous sharing your knowledge and insights about the PV process. Hope to see you remotely or in person soon.

Apart of the training itself, I am taking with me a great gift, a mind-blowing video of a third culture kid, my son, sharing the transition from his life in Uganda to Spain. Deeply grateful to my son for his participation in the video and the openness in his answers.
