So what is the Wi. experience?
Wilson Masaka, founder at Wilsen Initiative (Wi) “As a social entrepreneur the best learning happens in doing. Don’t be confined in a room designing for an audience that you have in mind, go out in the field, live there, interact with the target audience, check hypothesis and let the target audience have part in designing the product.” This is all that we do and encourage through the Wi. Experience. It is all about design thinking and experiential learning; LEARNING BY DOING
We encourage research before implementation takes place and a good lesson towards that direction is in design thinking or human centered design approach.
We came up with an ELIT model towards designing any workshop or program;
ELIT – Model
• Everyone learns in the process.
• Live there (Be present).
• Interact with the target audience.
• Target group has part in designing. Collaboration and co-creation
ASK – Model
