Bringing It Back To Communities
Community driven development 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: 1. Empower community members to address current needs. 2. Prepare them for future disasters where government intervention is lacking. 3. Equip communities to be stakeholders.
Walu works with a wide range of demographics. This ensures the community, as a whole, is represented. Organizations are encouraged to partner with one another when necessary to take ownership in initiatives involving daily community health and in times of crisis.
Now more than ever as we face global emergencies and disasters amidst dwindling government support, we need to be equipped to better our communities.
Per month Walu needs $7,900 to conduct workshops, community led projects and CDD Training in Santa Cruz County and beyond.
$20 a month will help provide disaster recovery workshops.
$50 a month will help provide materials for community led projects.
$115 a month will help provide Community Driven Development training.
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 in daily life and in times of calamity.
We thank you for joining us in this movement to Bring It Back To Communities.
