Role Play and
Discusses the challenges encountered and/or anticipated in peer sharing and movement building for different contexts: informal peer sharing, group sharing etc. And discusses potential solutions and actions to address these challenges.
STEP 1: LEADERSHIP VISION TRUNK
Draw two lines for the trunk in the middle of the sheet of paper.
Place a symbol for leadership vision at the top of the trunk.
Put a circle for current assessment at the bottom of the trunk
In the middle put number of leaders and members with different symbols for each and different colours for women and men.
STEP 2: CHALLENGE ROOTS OR CAUSES
What are the challenges that mean the group functioning or upscaling is not yet reaching the vision. Many different causes may be interrelated for different targets. Some causes are for women, some for men, and some for both.
In the case of leadership we put roots for: individual causes, household causes, group-level, community and government, religious institution etc as relevant from the mapping. Try to combine these so as not to have too many roots.
STEP 3 BRANCHES OR POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS
For each root draw one branch: household, community, individual. Then for each element on the roots identify an appropriate action, or series of actions which can be taken. Put these in the corresponding position along the branch.
STEP 4 FORCES ON THE TRUNK
What are the external context forces acting on the trunk or poisoning the subsoil?
STEP 5: DEFINING THE SMART ACTION FRUITS
For each solution identify a SMART action fruit that you will commit to.
STEP 6: TRACKING
This is a group activity in the same groups as Activity 1 Step 1 ie 4-6 groups of women and men, divided into leaders and members. But participants also draw their own situation in their notebooks.
Step 1 is done interactively by a volunteer from the back – on the assumption they are the less confident ones to encourage.
Steps 2 to 5 are done with participants drawing on cards and coming up in turn to present at the front.
After each step has been discussed and shared, each person does their own drawing in their notebook. Putting as many symbols as they want that they agree with from the discussion.
