Social Development

Community-led, participatory action is key to any community achieving its full potential. Empowered community participants play a vital role in formulating ingenious technologies and ideas that can improve the lives of its members.

Various capacity building activities and educational exercises can be undertaken at community level to improve the well-being of a community. These documents aim to provide guidance for these activities, in a holistic way and emphasising the importance of community empowerment.
