Module 24: Community Organizing for Empowerment + Exposure Visit
January 31 @ 8:30 am - February 12 @ 5:30 pm
Registration: 31 Jan 2019 at 08:30 – 12 Feb 2019 at 17:30
Most social change initiatives without serious people’s participation do not last. Community organizing for empowerment is a fine art with people participation as a core value. Although it takes time and the process is complicated, it warrants serious attention from community change leaders as the outcome is more likely to sustain. Participants will visit some success stories of communities that have gone through this process and learn about how they moved from community organising around single issues, to a social movement for structural change. We will review how they have arrived at the present point, linking the practices and theories behind them and pondering their possibilities for success and failure in the future.
To empower participants from diverse successful stories of grassroots people and inspire them to participate in community organising work in their own areas
- understand the conceptual framework, methodology and principles of community organising work and values of people participation and organisation
- be exposed to the skills involved with community organizing in the world of capitalisation
- have ability to analyse the community issues and structural violence
