Training for Transformation is an approach to community organization that enables people to "read their reality and write their own history" using a combination of group processes, socio-economic analysis and organizational development processes. Since its inception 40 years ago, Training for Transformation has been put into practice in over 60 countries globally. But how have people been using these materials in their communities over this period?

Training for Transformation in Practice brings together the experiences of activists who have adapted these materials to their own social and cultural contexts. The book describes the roots of Training for Transformation in people's struggles in the global South to gain political and economic independence and to overcome poverty. It outlines the theoretical origins of the approach and also includes Impact Assessment Tools, developed by activists who have used the training in their work. The book is inspiring reading for students of adult education and community organizers.
