“It has been a wonderful experience working with Sole and introducing PVMSC to our Behavior change campaign on reducing child stunting for UNICEF in Pakistan. Without Sole’s guidance and mentoring we would have not been able to achieve such a large scale intervention and manage to collect thousands of change stories. Sole’s input has been instrumental throughout the process.” – Raheel Waqar, CEO White Rice Communications. Online training for White Rice Communications and UNICEF Pakistan

Our live online course can help you get started with Participatory Video and Most Significant Change, our skilled trainers will guide you through the PVMSC process for you to learn how to assess when PVMSC is appropriate as well as to design a PVMSC process as part of a wider M&E strategy. The course also includes advice on how to make the most of a process that can simultaneously be an M&E activity, a programmatic intervention and an advocacy exercise.

Over the past 12 years of developing our PVMSC process we have seen that it can create an invaluable space for organisations to learn through reflection and reshaping of programmes in line with participants’ values. We have been asked on numerous occasions to provide guidance on using PV for monitoring and evaluation so we felt it was time to share our learning.

In December 2015 we launched our PVMSC toolkit to help spread the method. You can download a free copy here.
