Description of Community Development Work
- Developing Business Plans

The volunteers in this program can develop business plans for the community, conduct lessons for women’s empowerment, and share your skills with the local community. They may also identify problems, identify assets, locate resources, analyze local power structures, assess human needs, and investigate other concerns within the communities.
Community development placements seek to empower people by providing skills/awareness that they need to make a difference in their local communities. It gives communities greater control over the conditions that affect their lives. It does build up confidence to tackle such problems as effectively as any local action can.
This placement will help you understand both how to work with individuals, affect communities’ positions, organize meetings, and conduct searches.
