The sessions were run following the learning principles embedded in the LTLT Manual, with highly participatory and experience-based learning methodologies. Keeping participants' learning needs at the centre of the learning process, the methodologies carried out in the Training/workshop honored different learning styles in order to develop the full potential of each participant. Participants were provided with LTLT Manuals and learning materials to complement the learning sessions.
At the end of the workshop, participants were able to develop an action plan for implementing LTLT in Nepal in the formal and non-formal education settings they work in.
“I will take this manual to remote villages in Nepal and implement among the children in government schools" said one school teacher from a rural village.
Peace Education Network-Nepal has set up a seven step Action Plan for implementing LTLT Manual in Nepal and will be in charge of conducting a follow up and an evaluation research.
