Participatory video in South Sudan - Crisis-affected people reflecting on their role in the decision-making in humanitarian aid

People shared their stories on how crisis-affected people are involved in decision making in the design, implementation and evaluation of humanitarian interventions. Watch the trailer;

I had the pleasure of working with Simon on VNG International projects in Ethiopia and South Sudan. Simon developed complete participatory video trainings for us: from training materials to actually conducting the trainings including a training-of-trainer component to enable our local counterparts to continue video making in his absence.
