Using Stories for Community Health and Development in Oral Cultures

It's estimated that more than 4 Billion people in the world are oral learners. They can't, don't or won't read. Regardless of the reasons or situation, oral communication methods and participatory/discovery learning processes are important tools in most of the world. In this session we'll look at case studies and experiences my wife and I have had helping friends in North India create mother-tongue audio recordings of community development/health information and also Scripture stories. The session will give you a taste of how stories will help you work in oral cultures. I'll also provide links and connections for more information if the session wets your appetite.
