A two day PRA workshop was held for staff and students from the Gandhigram Rural Institute (GRI) in Tamil Nadu, India, together with 60 women members of the village Women's Association. This report describes the PRA training activities carried out in the village, with details of timing, group organisation and methods used. Areas of priority (eg the harijan community) and PRA methods were chosen after discussion of the first day's experience. Evaluation of the workshop and of PRA makes useful suggestions for PRA training.
Trainers of trainers, trainers and fieldworkers would find this a useful basis for planning a field-based workshop.
