Whither ChildrenÆs Hour? An Experimental PRA Among Labouring Rural Children

Publication year: 

A three-day workshop was held to: 1) explore whether different PRA methods could be used with children and, 2) to examine whether children have an understanding of the various dimensions of family and social life. The workshop was made up of 75 children participants. Some of the PRA exercises carried out and their objectives are described. It was observed that children who participated in the workshop were reluctant to talk initially, but with time the initial hesitation disappeared. The article also mentions that the PRA exercises made a significant impact on the childrenÆs life. Some moved from child labour and went back to school.
