Chennai, Jul. 29. Don Bosco Anbu Illam, Chennai organized two days of workshop entitled ''Participatory Action Research'' on 27-28 July, 2017 at Central Office, Park town, Chennai. Fr. T.D. John, SDB - PaR Coordinator and Mr. Sreenadh Asst. PaR coordinator from Hyderabad were the resource persons. Twenty Eight Participants from 6 Organizations (Marialaya, Anbagam, Beatitudes, Gedilam, DBAI - Chennai & Kavarapettai) were present for the workshop which intended to bring together all the YaR centres in Chennai province to learn about Participatory Action Research for 'Young at Risk' and help individuals and centres to be participative in solving the issues concerning the children.

Fr. T.D John presented the background and context of what PaR is all about and enlightened the participants in the context of a book 'The power of positive relationships' by Whale Done!  He also discussed about rights based approach and participatory approach. Topics on Child Rights (articles 3, 12 and 13 of UNCRC) and Right to Participation, were covered by Mr. Sreenadh. With a group session on 'Managing Boundaries in Relationships' and 'Effective handling of roles and responsibilities' the day came to its close.  

On the second day, participants were divided into small working groups for practice. With the help of the resource persons they identified five children issues and after prioritizing, the most serious one was taken for research in each group.  They worked on planning and analysis by finding causes and effects of the issue and found alternatives to find success indicators for the same.

The two days workshop was enriching and the participants were active and spontaneous in getting involved in the interaction and showed greater interest in learning. The participants were oriented on the questionnaire in practicing PAR in the respective centers and shown how it will be helpful for the adults as well as for the children.
