[en] Africa Rice Center (WARDA) facilitated the development and translation of 11 rice videos.
From 2005 to 2009, WARDA partners translated them into more than 30 African languages.
Open-air video presentations enhanced learning, experimentation, confidence, trust, and
group cohesion among rural people. The videos strengthened capacities of more than 500
organisations and hundreds of thousands of farmers. WARDA’s integrated rural learning
approach also helped women to access new markets and credit. Learning videos allow for
unsupervised learning; unleash local creativity and experimentation; facilitate institutional
innovations; and improve social inclusion of the poor, youth, and women.
