Participatory video in Myanmar: Capacity building for local facilitators
In 2013, representatives from communities in the Ayeyarwady Delta region of Myanmar (Burma) were trained in facilitating participatory video processes. The ground-breaking capacity-building programme was the first of its kind in Myanmar, and is one of only two examples of participatory video known to have ever taken place in the country. The programme was initiated and funded by the Church of Sweden and implemented by InsightShare in collaboration with the Lutheran World Federation in Myanmar (LWF Myanmar). LWF Myanmar is a key partner of the Church of Sweden, with a long-term presence in the country and deep-rooted relationships with communities across the delta since the devastating Cyclone Nargis in May 2008.
