Introduction to Osi Tanata Copy

To introduce you to the MSC process, weu2019re going to examine an MSC case study together. Weu2019ll use this to guide your first exercise with MSC, where youu2019ll have the opportunity to choose the most significant story u2013 a core part of the process.




About Osi Tanata


Osi Tanata is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) in Bougainville, Papua New Guinea that has used the MSC technique.u00a0



The Osi Tanata team worked through the MSC process by following six core steps. Importantly, they tailored the process to what worked best in their own local context.



When using MSC in their project, the Osi Tanata team:

  • Collected stories directly from community members who were participating in their livelihood projects
  • n
  • Documented the stories and selected the most significant ones
  • n
  • Documented the reasons why they were chosen
  • n
  • Shared this feedback with the community and with the funders
  • n

Next, weu2019ll explore three stories that came from the Osi Tanata project and then youu2019ll have a chance to practice with MSC.
