Africa: Communities in Action Resource Kit

A New and Essential Resource for Teaching Global Education

Africa: Communities in Action is comprised of two resources: Africa: Communities in Action Instructional Guide, and a DVD of the award-winning Knowledge Network documentary The Gambia: Communities in Action.

The DVD is designed as a case study, providing students and teachers with a compelling, positive look at the West African Rural Development (WARD) program and trained community development workers putting their skills in action in rural Gambia, one of the poorest countries in the world. Many development issues introduced here (gender, cultural and religious challenges, poverty, rural-urban divisions) are further explored in the Guide. This new and essential resource.

For more information, please contact Don Sawyer.
