Why They Come, Why They Don’t Come

An attempt to explain why las personas attend PPH meetings must be careful not to attribute to the program more charm than it has. Attendance has not been high — it has averaged about half that of vocational training (capacitacion laboral) courses given by the same institution (FREDER) with the support of the same radio station in the same communities. (The average attendance is approximately 12 for PPH, 24 for capacitacion laboral.) An account of motivation to participate should not encourage anyone to think that a programme like PPH is likely to be easy — on the contrary, persuading participants to attend is likely to be a fight every step of the way. Although child development at the pre-school level and union appear to many analysts to be keys to coping with poverty, they are not ordinarily high priorities in the everyday lives of the poor.
