In this issue we look at the work of people who were traditionally called extension workers – but this implies that they bring ideas from outside which are thought of as superior and must be extended into other areas. Instead we will use the name animators in this issue: people who provide encouragement, support and new life in their communities. They are people who take time to see the potential of communities, to understand their ways, and to share appropriate ideas and knowledge. Of course, what we call such people does not really matter – what does matter is their attitude towards the communities they work with.
