Dhwanigalu - Learning Dialogues with Adolescent Girls at the Margins
With the support of South Asia Women’s Fund, Prakriye field centre initiated a year-long capacity-building programme for strengthening the agency, autonomy and leadership of 85 adolescent girls in rural Mysore, in March 2016. This training module effectively combines traditional and technology-mediated learning methodologies such as digital story telling, photo-essays, role-plays, simulation exercises and debates, to trigger learning dialogues at the grassroots. Since August 2016, faculty and students of Visual Communication from the SRISHTI Institute of Art, Design and Technology are collaborating in this process. Read more.
Namma Mahiti Kendras (Our Information Centres)
Prakriye's information centre strategy has focused on partnering with women’s collectives to build vibrant civic-public spaces.From operating 2 ICT-enabled centres covering 10 villages in 2005, we have grown to 7 information centres covering 40 villages of Hunsur and H.D.Kote blocks of Mysuru. Each information centre caters to four to five villages in its area, and is engaged in public information outreach, providing assistance to members of marginalised socio-economic groups in filing entitlement applications, and citizenship education. Young women information intermediaries deploy a range of techno-social strategies in their work – mobile phone-based informational networking through an Open Source Interactive Voice Response (IVR), participatory informational video production, MIS-based tracking of entitlement applications and video-based peer learning methods.
