City Life Series, Part 20: Lines in the Dust
In a village in northern Ghana, a group of men and women discuss their daily chores with the help of a chart they've drawn in the dust. In the Eastern Ghats of India, villagers use theater and mathematics to discuss growing cotton. What these two villages have in common is "Reflect", a program aiming to reach the 900 million illiterate adults across the world. Reflect uses participants' own knowledge and experience as starting points for learning, and instead of importing textbooks from the outside, participants create their own learning materials.
