Empowering a community is not something that you can do to that community. Because the process of empowerment, or capacity development, is a social process, it is something that the community itself must undergo. Even members of a community, as individuals, can not develop their community;
It is a growth process of the community as a whole, internally, as an organism
Trying to force growth, trying to force
social change, called social engineering, and it does have its effects, but usually effects that are far from what you want. Our method is to stimulate the community to take action.
We often refer to that action as a “project.” By doing a project, the community
will become more empowered, develop more capacity. The action it takes is its exercise to become stronger.
We noted above that the people must struggle
in order to become stronger.
The basic method of a community mobilizer is to
first determine what the community as a whole wants, then guide it in
struggling to achieve it.
In the course of carrying out the project,
community members may identify some skills that they lack. These could be in
accounting, in reporting, or in technical skills. If you are able to help them
obtain training in such skills, we recommend that the training is participatory
That people learn best by “doing” rather than listening to
lectures or watching presentations.
Why help communities to become
stronger? The world will be a better place; poverty will be reduced; working
towards this is a meaningful endeavor. What is the empowerment method? Charity.
