Preparing for disaster
A PILLARS Guide
Introduction to PILLARS Guides
These guides are designed for use in small group situations where one or more people areliterate and confident enough to lead others in group discussion.They aim to providematerial for discussion around a subject either in isolation or as part ofa regular groupmeeting;for example offarmers,literacy trainees or Mothers Union members.Ideally justtwo or three pages should be used each time,allowing plenty oftime for discussion oftheissues raised and for carrying out some ofthe practical ideas suggested.No training is firstnecessary for the discussion leader.PILLARS Guides aim to increase confidence among group members,so that they cansuccessfully manage change within their own situation without the need for outside help.They try to build on existing knowledge and experiences among the membersor withintheir community,so that different ideas can be tried out,adapted,and then eitherabandoned ifnot found useful,or adopted iffound useful.
