About This Project

We are a global network of changemakers. We believe that transformed communities begin with transformed people. When poor or otherwise vulnerable people recognize the value of who they are, and what they have, they discover the hope and agency to better their lives. When an entire community is invited into this process, the potential for change is limitless. We are educators in ‘Community Centred Development’ (or ‘ABCD’ Asset Based Community Driven Development), we provide Community Achievement Grants to boost community projects (such as health clinics & small businesses), and we also offer development support to our network.

By uncovering strengths instead of needs, we set communities on a path of self-driven development. Sometimes community development initiatives do not succeed because well-meaning organizations take a ‘top down’ approach and communities do not feel ownership of ‘prescribed’ community initiatives. We walk with our communities every step of the way and ensure that the impetus always comes from within the communities where we work.

Why give to this project?

Our goal is not only to achieve developmental outcomes but more importantly to establish the mechanism for sustainable community development into the future. As we help communities mobilize their own people and assets, they develop social capital – the links of mutual trust, interdependency and community action that are necessary for long-term success.
