TZH 12 - The listening revolution
In this episode, we asked FAO expert Christiane Monsieur to document her trip to a handful of villages in Niger. These villages organize Dimitra Clubs. In communities all throughout Niger, there’s been a quiet revolution going on through these clubs. Its protagonists are tens of thousands-strong. They organize in local groups of women, men and young people. Their goal? Mobilizing communities to find local solutions to local problems – from stray trash to malnutrition. Their method sounds simple – but has proven to be transformational in hundreds of villages across the country: listening to each other.
