How VFPCK training is different

VFPCK take a shift from the routine classroom teaching pattern to a highly participatory and intimate style involving brain storming sessions, group discussions, participatory analysis, group exercises and games. We periodically organize sequential technological and human resource development trainings to master farmers, farmers and extension functionaries. The trainings are organized on rational need analysis coupled with feedback analysis and follow up action.
