BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
How This Web Site Came About and Why It is Here
About this Site
The training material you will find here, which you may download to your computer for free, is mainly for community workers in the field. You will also find policy, strategies, methodology, curriculum, management and planning material useful to teams initiating or upgrading any community empowerment or development programme.
The strategies and methodology described here go beyond traditional community development techniques, with their rural bias and emphasis on mobilizing self help groups; it includes modified action-oriented management training aimed at community members and their leaders, and adaptations of community organizing methods that are appropriate to the currently rapid urbanization of the world. Other topics include poverty reduction, gender strategy, facilitation, income generation, capacity development, monitoring, brain storm, community participation, social animation, learning an oral language, and empowerment. Explanation.
The site is a bi-product of the Community Management Programme (CMP), initially funded by Danida (Denmark), designed by Habitat (UN Centre for Human Settlements). UNCHS ended its participation in Uganda in October 1998, and Danida ended its participation in the CDP (Community Development Programme) of Habitat at the end of 1999. See the Uganda archived project documents.
This site, however, continues on through the good will of the Seattle Community Network (SCN) which hosted it since 1996. It is maintained by Phil Bartle (CTA of CMP Uganda 1994/98) and Lourdes Sada (Website Manager) on a pro bono basis. Reports remain as archival documents. The training material, for you to download, print, translate, and adapt for local development by planners, managers, administrators and community workers around the world, will continue to be the focus (updated, improved, new material added) because of the enthusiastic response and demand for it from five continents. See the Community Empowerment Collective.
