About this book

Three volumes designed to assist workers in the field who are encouraging the development of self-reliant creative communities. Training for Transformation has as its basic philosophy the belief that we should all participate in making this world a more just place to live in. Training for Transformation integrates the approach of Paulo Freire and how to put his method into practice, Manfred Max Neef's understanding of fundamental human needs, group methods which are essential for participatory education, organizational development, which stresses how to build structures which enable people to become self reliant, and social analysis to help groups find the root causes of problems.

"A comprehensive set of handbooks that needs to be in all practitioners’ hands. As inspirational as they are practical."
- Mamphela Ramphele, formerly Vice-chancellor of the University of Cape Town

"These books have much to offer community workers and adult educators engaged in the struggle to help people take some control over their lives."
- Association of Community Workers
