Presentation of the outcomes.
Group Work (4 different groups) – share which targets groups they worked already with and how did they reach to them. Based on the poem that you made (who are the marginalized/disadvantaged groups in your community) define which tools, approaches and methods did you use/can you use to reach out to them and involve them and why is that method/tool/approach the most convenient.
Two groups prepare a list on a flipchart with DOs’ and DON’Ts (“recommendation”), and don’t forget to reflect is the same approach relevant for the different groups (specify which recommendation is for which target) and two groups prepare a list of tools/methods/approaches that can be used to reach out. Presentation of the outcome and discussion about each “recommendation” and the different good practices (within the presentations the trainers should ask questions for further clarifications, provide additional examples etc).
