S
tudy Circles

KATC promotes the formation of study circles in the villages. This is a method of adult participatory education. A small group of 7 to 12 farmers come together to form a study circle group. The group chooses the topic it would like to study. There is a group leader, who need not be an expert in the subject matter, who is trained in study-circle leadership skills, and whose task it is to animate the group. All participants contribute to the learning process by sharing information and working on practical exercises together. KATC has produced seven study-circle manuals on:

- Small Earth Dam Construction

- Sustainable Agriculture

- Agroforestry

- Organic Vegetable Production

- Manure Handling and Storage

- Food Legume Crops

- Organic Cotton Production

The manuals are currently on sale. KATC is presently preparing a manual on the marketing of organic products.
