This Site Map is here to help you navigate through this site (which has over twelve thousand documents in over forty languages on it). A good place to start is the list of Modules. If you click on the first document under each module listed here, you will go to the module introduction, which, in turn, lists the other documents in that module An alternative approach is to click on the Key Words, and browse through each letter of the alphabet.

Guest Papers:

Kamal Phuyal is one of the foremost PRA trainers in Nepal. He asks the question "Why PRA?" noting that most material about PRA is about "How (to do PRA)." To Kamal, the answer is related to the syntheses of Buddhist and Hindu values of his home country, Nepal. See: Sharing PRA. His later contribution is Participatory Appreciative Planning Approach [PAPA].

Benjamin Fleming, community specialist in Australia, writes an article that opens with the provocative statement, "Participation does not always lead to empowerment." See: Participation. See his later contribution, Gaining Community Ownership , where he discusses our role in this process.

Grants and Funding:

Are you looking for grant money or funding for your agency or project? The main purpose of this web site is to provide training material. It is maintained on a voluntary (unpaid) basis. It is not a source of funding. If you are looking for grant money, however, there are three ways this site can assist you. (1) If you look at the links pages, you will find links to other sites, including sources of grant money. You need to do your own research. (2) If you look at the various project design and proposals pages (find them on this site map), you will find guidelines and models that will help you write your own grand or project proposal. (3) If you use that project proposal format offered here and, with a request for feedback, send your proposal to me, the web master, Phil Bartle, I will return it to you with feedback, including advice, at your request. I am not a source of funding.
