In 2013, representatives from communities in the Ayeyarwady Delta region of Myanmar (Burma) were trained in facilitating participatory video processes. The ground-breaking capacity-building programme was the first of its kind in Myanmar, and is one of only two examples of participatory video known to have ever taken place in the country.
This is the story of the first stage of the 3-stage capacity building programme which aims to pilot Participatory Video as a tool for community development in the Ayeyarwady Delta in Myanmar. Local facilitators were trained to use participatory video to enable horizontal information sharing, provide a forum for participatory decision-making and a communication tool for local advocacy.

In August 2013, representatives from four villages in the Delta region of Myanmar joined a training programme in facilitating participatory video. This unique capacity-building programme was the first of its kind in Myanmar. It was designed to provide trainees with all the technical and facilitation skills necessary to undertake participatory video processes, within their communities.
