Über uns

Society for Participatory Education and Development (SPED) is a network, engaged in developing and strengthening the capacity of the grass-root organizations to mobilize the poor through Reflect approach. SPED is also playing an intermediary role in respect of making new information, skill and external source available to its partner organizations and strengthening the disadvantages people´s (Lokokendra) organization and Reflect Network.

SPED, a participatory based national level reflect network and non-profit development organization, established in 2005, strives for a sustainable development of the poor and marginalized communities.

We represent organizations implementing and promoting participatory education approaches, particularly Reflect. We believe that transformation of society to make it more just and egalitarian is possible when a critical mass of people, those currently marginalized, come forward in collective action to claim their rights. Participatory approaches contribute to the social awareness of individuals to develop their analytical skills so that they can organize themselves and successfully claim their rights and just society.

Participatory and rights based liberating education approaches that meet the current demand (institutional, right based liberating education and literacy)” so that marginalized people who are being deprived of rights can have the capacity to make a rich, equitable and peaceful society.
