Hello to all, i am very happy to join this group,because i am working in the field of rural development, i hope to learn a lot from you and share with you the few i know.

from my experience i learned that our rural communities have a huge knowledge gained from thier long experience in life and also from dealing with GOV,NGOs and each others,our communities - i believe- are the main drivers of KE and with a little help from us can make this knowledge available to all. They have their on tools fo exchanging knowledge for example (exchange visits,local festivals like wedding, Eids,poetry and etc.) so to make  this huge knowledge exchanged correctly and effectively to sustain development we have to make all   stake holders on the same page knowing,willing and caring about KE.
