The Self Help Approach to community development acknowledges that community members have the greatest potential to transform their own lives, their families, and communities, and seeks to unlock that potential. Whilst this is not a Self Help Project, we have adopted some of the central tenets of the Self Help Approach. By seeking out the poorest of the poor and gathering them into groups, communities can learn strategies for solving their own problems, and participate in identifying and solving the problems present in their own communities.
Groups are taught around four topics each month: Understanding your own value; Relationship with husband; Relationship with children, friends and neighbors; Relationship with God. Through sharing knowledge, ignorance’s are overcome and beliefs are changed allowing trust to be built.
