JEEP offers workshops and awareness seminars. To this cause, JEEP has developed a special module system, which addresses the problems of the rural farmers, women and youth in their own setting. This ensures the use of locally available materials, communication in an appropriate language and respect of local socio-cultural norms .
Training is available in the following areas:
Energy conservation and alternate fuels
Fuel saving cookstoves and other household energy
Natural pest control
Tree planting (from raising seedlings to tree care and management)
Community teaching approaches
Organic farming and agroforestry
Fireless Basket Cooker
JEEP travels to rural communities and hosts TOT (Training Of Trainer) workshops and awareness seminars. The training is designed to suit the needs of the potential audience, and gives the TOTs skills in conservation, farming, construction of stoves, and community extension so that they are able to teach other villagers.
One trainer could on average yield the following outputs:
Sensitized: 90 people
Trained: 25 trainees
Stoves Made: 10 stoves
Trees planted: 60 trees
(Facts obtained from a follow-up exercise after 2 months of 392 TOTs trained under the PLAN -ECP for the year 2000)
