Frequent practices of involvement are essential for relief and development companies offering their services in communities. Communities need to participate and provide input in order for projects to have the greatest impact on community development. Sadly, community assistance is still seen as a gift and not necessity, and we need to, therefore, challenge these views so that it does not deter potential beneficiary contributions.

This extensive Course addresses the needs of workers in the relief and development sphere to boost community participation in projects. These skills, established by proven ‘research-based’ principles, will make sure that community projects are successfully conducted.
