Clip: Policy Day Soup

This is an extract of making a ‘soup’ with the bitter, sour, sweet as well as spicy ‘ingredients’ that came up during the policy day. The participants suggest which impressions or issues raised on the day can go into the soup as ingredients. We used this exercise in the workshop sessions and here at the policy day where practitioners, policy makers and the NRPF mothers’ group came together.
