CLTS training workshop for facilitation teams in East Timor

This case study describes and analyses a six-day Training of Facilitators (TOF) workshop on the CLTS methodology in East Timor, which was held in November 2011. It describes how CLTS has been adapted to the Timorese context (where there is limited experience with community facilitation and mobilization and there has been a long period of subsidy for infrastructure generally) how the workshop was planned and implemented, how the
practice sessions were organized in the villages, and what was learned from the workshop about how to do CLTS training and how to facilitate the triggering process.

800 words for shit: CLTS in Papua New Guinea

There are approximately 800 languages in PNG! That’s close to 800 versions of the word ‘shit’, and during past workshops when facilitators are asked to mention the word that means ‘shit’ in their own language, there’s actually quite a competitiveness to see who has the most extravagant translation. “e” or variations of the phrase “e”, seems to be quite common in some parts of the country.
