Study Circle Kits
The Study Circle Kit is for use by community groups. Within communities, people hold different views of the world developed from their own experiences.
Study circles provide a forum where these differences can be respected and learnt from to work towards a common goal. Members of a study circle become familiar with how to work in this democratically responsible manner.
