Claffey, Joan M., Ed.
This publication focuses on the role and training of front-line development workers (paraprofessionals). It describes the non-formal education approach to their training and to the learning which they facilitate among their neighbors. Several pages are devoted to brief project descriptions illustrating some of the ways in which development projects are using and training villagers as change agents in the fields of health and nutrition, family planning, agriculture, education and literacy, management, and community development and leadership. Included in the publication is a selective bibliography on village level change agents, covering the above fields, and a listing of organizations that train front-line development workers in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
