Training for Transformation is designed to assist workers in the field who are encouraging the development of self-reliant creative communities. The set consists of three practical and easy-to-use handbooks that are useful for anyone working toward transforming society.
“All real liberation and development must rise from the grassroots up.”— Training for Transformation, Vol. 1
This classic three-volume set of innovative training techniques, originally published in South Africa, has been continually revised because of its importance in the field of community education. The texts integrate a variety of approaches and methodologies essential for participatory education, organizational development, and community self-reliance.
By encouraging training that helps groups find the root causes of problems, Training for Transformation is ideal for adult education, social workers, community organizers, churches, trade unions, and all those concerned with creating social justice.
