USING ICTS FOR GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY
This site is aimed at a trainer who wishes to train a group of e-government practitioners from developing/transitional economies about e-transparency projects. The site would need to be modified somewhat for use in different situations; for example for use by an e-government practitioner as a self-study guide; or for use in training postgraduate students who lack public sector experience.

WRITING FOR CHANGE: A GUIDE FOR TRAINERS
Notes drawn from handouts developed for Fahamu's Writing for Change trainers' workshops. The notes don't constitute a complete manual on training, but are drawn from A Trainer's Guide for Participatory Learning and Action, by Pretty N, Guijt I, Scoones I and Thompson J, International Institute for Environment and Development, London, 1995.

Developed by experts and practitioners in the field and targeted at trainers, the manual contains fifty handouts, a wealth of exercises and examples that will be an eye opener to those who make and take images, as well as those who daily consume them.
