World Vision is a community development organisation that provides short-term and long-term assistance to 100 million people globally. For six decades, World Vision has been engaging people to work towards eliminating poverty and its causes. The Social Entrepreneurship & Economic Development (SEED) unit is based in World Vision Australia, Melbourne. SEED creates scalable economic development models and facilitates public-private partnerships that apply business principles, to help people living in poverty gain the income and assets they need to support their families.
For the successful PALS initiative, World Vision and Dynamind eLearning engaged Moodle’s online learning management system to support the frontline staff who are working on the ground directly alongside the communities implementing these economic development approaches. The PALS platform enabled 75 staff working in 15 countries and supporting approximately 35,000 smallholder farmer households to collaborate and support one another throughout the implementation of their projects. The participants worked through facilitated problem-based eWorkshops to develop their skills and share experiences in order to support one another to help poor farmers increase their household incomes.
“Through the training, I have been able to acquire and utilize the knowledge and skills acquired to help train farmers in my community about how they can work together in groups to produce and sell products.
“The LVCD notes are like a bible to me. The facilitators tried to give as many challenging scenarios as possible and this is has been helpful for me especially in times of difficult situations.” Juliet, eLVCD course participant, WV Uganda
