Empowering Communities

Community empowerment enables people to play an active role in the decisions that affect our environment.

Through empowerment, people are able to control the factors and decisions that define their lives. By increasing their assets and building their capacities, they can therefore broaden their networks.

In order to empower a community, our organisation’s members are involved in various activities and develop campaigns to empower the sensitizing people who are in vulnerable positions or who are potentially weak in the social structure.

We believe when a community is empowered, people feel free to act within the society and at the same time associate a sense of belonging to it. Through community participation and capacity-building, they rediscover their own potential and gain confidence. They also feel worthy of the community, for the help they are providing – to make a change.
