Development is not a gift, it is an inner change and it has to happen by the community!

For organizations to provide relief and development services, it is required that they have proper input and participation from the target communities. Unfortunately, aid is considered as a gift and we need to change people’s mentality so that it does not kill the potential of beneficiaries to contribute.

We come up with this course to address the “research-based” needs of development workers and managers for enhancing community contribution to development. This comprehensive training workshop will ensure the participants gain a change in their performance and not only some useful information.
