Trainer Toolkit

PPI Training ToolkitWith support from Cisco Systems Foundation and McGraw-Hill, Grameen Foundation developed a trainer toolkit available free-of-charge. It is intended for trainers educating others on the use of the PPI in a workshop-type environment.

In addition to providing this toolkit, the PPI team recognizes trainers in its Registry of PPI Trainers, which individuals and organizations can use to find trainers working in their countries.
