Workshop at Folk High Schools about Self Help Groups in Cambodia - it went so well!

It was some eventful days when Mrs. Sinang and Mr. Kimleng visited the three Folk High Schools in Silkeborg, Rønde and Brenderup with 'Workshop on Self Help Groups´ this late April and early May. The two trained facilitators from Cambodia provided the students with insight into how poor Cambodian farmers are equipped to obtain rights to farmland through a role play, where farmer groups negotiate with the authorities through 'soft advocacy'.
