PILLARS Guides provide practical, discussion-based learning on community development. The Guides are designed for use in small community groups such as youth groups, church groups, women’s groups, farmer groups and literacy groups. A trained leader is not required; just one literate person. The Guides aim to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of group members by drawing out and building on existing knowledge and experience, and empowering members to take charge of their own development. There are between 20 to 24 topics in the Guides. Each topic has a double page containing information on the topic, an illustration and a number of discussion questions or practical activities.
The Guides also contain a number of Bible studies designed for group learning and discussion.
