Community Development

In Moviendo Esperanzas we believe in integral development of individuals and communities. We understand community as a place of regular interaction of a group of people like a neighborhood, a school or a workplace.

We want to take care of the needs starting with what the community itself identifies as a need and not what we identify from our outside position. Therefore we start off with a participative community diagnosis that brings together the information of all the community leaders, organized groups and the population in general.

The needs are prioritized according to what was reported by the people in the diagnosis. An action course is afterwards decided – for those needs we can work with as an organization. We organize trainings, workshops, projects of construction or specific fundraising according to the specific case.

The trainings and workshops are also available on demand. We have an interdisciplinary group of professional volunteers that take care of specific requests when received.
