The goal and purpose statements and the workshop objective could be written on flipcharts and taped on the wall before the workshop commencement. Round table(s) would be ideal for effective participation. Overhead projector, screen and flipcharts will be needed. Find out the facility for coffee, tea and drinking water at the venue and the location of wash rooms for men and women. While choosing a venue, prefer one with handicap accessibility. Effective use of participants as volunteers will be useful in conducting discussion sessions and in displaying flipcharts.
