To help the pastoral agents in their task of conscientisation of small groups to either social questions or religious animation. The workshop has a theoretical part and a practical one: the participants are invited to prepare a conscientisation session on a theme chosen by themselves.
The different church models. With the help of posters the session of conscientisation is meant to help people understand the evolution of the pastoral plans in the Churches in Africa after the council Vatican II. The stress is put on the importance of the Small Christian Communities (SCC), one of the major choices found after 1985. The different steps of conscientisation to social problems. Stress here on the methodology used by Cardinal Cardjin (See, Judge, Act) and Paulo Freire as it has been developed by the Lumko Pastoral Institute in South Africa for the Churches in Africa.
