Socio-Economic Development

 Sustainable socio-economic development necessitates the building of the capacity of local communities and their associations as well as in the recognition, strengthening and appropriate use of local governance systems and structures based on the customs and traditions of affected communities. Community coping mechanisms and support structures need to be strengthened and consolidated for more equitable development.

Projects especially target vulnerable women and children using local realities and settings.
