Whither Children’s Hour? An Experimental PRA among Labouring Rural Children

A three day workshop was held in June 1994 with the stated objectives being to: Explore whether the different PRA methods could be used with children. Examine whether children have an understanding of the various dimensions of family and social life. The authors collaborated with an NGO called Peace Trust based at Dindigul which is serving children in Tamil Nadu, India. They chose for the workshop a village 10km from Dindigul, called Gandhinagar where they ran an Education Centre for Children.
