2 GULL in the Community
GULL supporters, leaders and participants explain GULL's role in the community and the workplace.
The purpose of the video is to profile GULL’s role in facilitating change and transformation among the poorest communities. It also outlines how GULL encourages participants by recognizing the impact of community members as they develop themselves and thereafter ‘cascade’ the process of action learning to others.
During the period 2010-11, GULL’s work with communities expanded rapidly as pilot initiatives with international agencies like Compassion, Tearfund and World Vision demonstrated the value of self-directed action learning. GULL is especially appreciated by the large numbers of volunteers with no other opportunity for personal and professional development. In this video, a variety of leaders speak about the importance of encouraging community-based learning and recognizing the outcomes via GULL. The video features perspectives from Africa, Jamaica, Sri Lanka and the Pacific region.
