Bringing It Back to Communities

Community Driven Development (CDD) forms steady leadership and communication channels within the heart of each community. Training in CDD empowers communities to run autonomously to bridge the gap between government aid and people’s needs in both times of normalcy and in times of calamity.

Through Community Driven Development, Walu works with community leaders and members to gain a collective voice to

  • Empower community members to move from recipients to producers.  
  • Prepare them for future disasters. 
  • Equip communities to be stakeholders.

Organizations, government agencies and community members are encouraged to collaborate with one another. 

Now more than ever as we face global crises and disasters, we need to be equipped to resourcefully come together to not only recover but have flourishing communities. 

Per month, Walu needs $7,900 to conduct workshops, write curriculum, facilitate community led projects and provide CDD Training.

            $25 a month will help provide community facilitation assistance.

            $35 a month will provide course material to trainees.

            $50 a month will help provide Community Driven Development training to communities.  

From the conception of Walu we have dedicated our mission to empowering communities internationally and locally. Our work in sanitation/hygiene, healthy water sources, latrines and disaster recovery has equipped communities to find solutions to obstacles face in their daily life and in times of calamity.  

Thank you for joining us in this movement to Bring it Back to Communities.
