Handbook on Participatory Methods for Community-based Projects

This handbook is intended to help integrate more participatory methods into programming for vulnerable populations, especially war-affected young adults and children.

In Liberia, Sierra Leone and Northern Uganda, among other countries in sub-Saharan Africa and throughout the world, communities are poorly equipped to respond in positive ways to returning girl mothers and to other war-affected young mothers in the community who are vulnerable because they may be unmarried, poor, and/or lack family support.

The overall goal is to improve the reintegration and well-being of young mothers by involving them as key actors in changing their situations and building broad community support for this process.
