My experience at the PAEPARD Agricultural Innovation Facilitators’ Workshop from 28th November to 2nd December 2011 in Entebbe (Uganda) has been a very enriching one. I got the opportunity to learn about facilitation, meet professionals in the field of agriculture (from more than 10 countries), who had many years of experience in research, extension, farmer organisations and NGOs. By documenting and blogging about the workshop everyday, I took up a new challenge and I’m glad that I succeeded in doing so. The next step was to video interview some participants of the workshop, which was new for me since I had never put into practice the things I had learned in agricultural extension with respect to interviews.
On the last day of the workshop, I had interviewed some on the participants and had no idea how the outcome would be, but in the end, even if the videos are not perfect I’m happy with the little contribution I have been able to make in sharing the experience of these professionals with others!
The video interviews can be viewed below:
Mr. Laurent Glinx from Benin
Mr. David Suale of Sierra Leone
Mrs. Sylvie Mbog from Cameroon
