Chapter 5 analyses in detail what happened during the HRE part of Tostan programme in the village. It analyses the different learning strategies used in class and show how they allowed participants to ground the abstract human rights knowledge into their concrete daily life. This chapter also gives an understanding of classroom dynamics and analyse how participants made sense of their experience in class. Chapter 5 might be particularly relevant for practitioners interested in implementing indirect development programmes through HRE, and to scholars studying what works in human development.
