Location: Benin, Africa
About the Client’s Users
Target geography: North Africa
Target industries: Grassroot NGOs in the food security and nutrition sectors
The Ask: Conversion of educational manual into compelling e-learning
Our client was ACED, an NGO based in Benin (West Africa). They sought Clearly Blue/Bodh’s help to convert their research findings on evidence informed decision making into an engaging course. The course would empower and enable decision makers and practitioners in the food security and nutrition sectors to make their process more efficient, effective and result oriented.
How we rose to the challenge: Storytelling ahoy!
The USAID-funded project aimed to convert research information gathered by ACED and an international think tank called 3ie into a course that could trigger local action to reduce food and nutrition insecurity, poverty and hunger in vulnerable communities. Bodh learning designers collaborated with the client to design a course that was an unique and engaging combination of video and textual content.
Bodh transformed dry, academic content from the client’s manual into content that was relatable and retainable through storytelling. The course was designed with a storyline and characters whom grassroot NGO workers could relate to. The content was embedded with contextual examples that helped learners relate abstract concepts to real-world situations.
The Impact: A delighted client
The Bodh team successfully delivered a one hour 50 minutes course on evidence driven decision making. The course was translated into French.
Speaking about our services, our client SPOC Mr. Kisito Gandji said that “They clearly understood the spirit and idea we wanted to convey from the beginning.”
Here is Mr. Gandhi’s recommendation for those considering Bodh’s services: “Take into consideration the level of availability and involvement that Clearly Blue will have. Additionally, leverage their suggestions during your collaboration with them. During our collaboration, they’ve provided us with a lot of ideas to improve different aspects of the guide.”
