We believe that those living in their community are the best equipped to activate meaningful and lasting change.
Community Development is at the heart of our partners’ work. We believe that those living in their community are the best equipped to activate meaningful and lasting change. We believe that every community member has capacities, abilities and ideas that will assist them to achieve their dreams and goals. That is why we work with a strengths-based approach to community development that is theologically informed and solutions oriented.
Our partners work to ensure that the most marginalised have a voice and that their strengths are utilised to build a more inclusive, stronger, sustainable community.
We have projects such as women’s savings groups that support women to come together, develop leadership skills, build livelihoods and save for the future. Much of the money they earn ensures their children can attend school and, as women contribute to the household, they are also given a voice within the home, building a better future for everyone. Our partners also engage male members of the community to become champions of women’s agency, voice and empowerment, ensuring that it is an effective cooperative movement.
