Community development supports communities in utilizing their resources to improve the standard of living in their neighbourhood. The purpose of community development is majorly to build communities based on human rights, justice, mutual respect, and equality. Community development is fundamentally grounded in the idea that everyone should have access to health, happiness, wealth, justice, and opportunity. It acknowledges that some individuals, organizations, and communities are marginalized and oppressed as a result of how society and its systems are set up.

This training aims at equipping communities, community leaders, NGOs, CSOs, and other practitioners with relevant knowledge and skills for effective participation in socio-economic development.
