In our work with communities, we empower them to see what they need for development. Then we build the local capacity and support them to become independent and sustain their new capacities.
In integrated community development, many of our services come together and mutually enforce development efforts. Literacy becomes social change. Libraries become community centers. Environmental awareness becomes pollution control. Legal training turns into new village habits. Community-based NGOs take the future in their own hands, with local leaders and government.
