Date of publication:  01 Jan 2012 Authors:  Terre des hommes Publisher:  Terre des hommes Publication type:  Toolkit / Handbook / Manual

In this short manual, Terre des hommes describes the MOVE project: Movement, Games, and Sports.  The Movement, Games and Sport tool is designed primarily to support psychosocial projects and help enhance the quality of intervention with children. It uses an instrument-games and sport (another instrument could be for instance creative activities, theatre, video, etc.) with a specific methodology of experiential learning and participation and a strategy of transfer of competencies through 3 stages: basic training – coaching - training of trainers (for multiplication purposes). Those 3 pillars used efficiently by competent trainers guarantee a qualitative transfer of competencies to adults for an improved psychosocial support of children.  In addition to the theoretical foundation, this manual provides practical guidelines for application, such as what is required to implement this approach (human resources, budget etc.).
