Working within communities
All the individual members of the CHRC have a community development program. Community development is a strategy involving partnership with community members to solve problems and build strength, self-sufficiency and well-being.
Community development is a process through which all members of the community gain an increase in control over their lives, as well as the life of their community, by achieving equal access to participate in the collective decisions about issues that matter to them. Through ongoing support, training and opportunities for civic engagement, community members are empowered to participate fully in developing and implementing strategies to achieve positive change.
The primary outcome of community developments is improved quality of life. Effective community development results in the mutual benefit and shared responsibility among community members.
