COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION AND EMPOWERMENT

About Community Mobilization and Empowerment

The community Empowerment and mobilization is the FSD's direct support program to grassroots communities in Uganda. Through this program, FSD Jinja Uganda directly works with grassroots local communities, implementing sustainable community projects and programs. We bring both human and non-human resources together to undertake sustainable community based development activities. The objective is to build grassroots communities' capacities to gain control over the factors and decisions that shape their lives; increase their assets and attributes to gain access, partner, network, a voice and gain control over their lives.

Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR)

We conduct CBPR, a partnership approach to research that equitably involves community members, organizational representatives, and researches in all aspects of the research. Equitable involvement contributes expertise, shared decision-making and ownership of the outcomes and action. The goal is to increase knowledge and understanding of a given phenomenon and integrate the knowledge gained with interventions, and social change that improve the quality life of community members

Community Sensitization and Education

We focus on community based education to promote learning and social development with individuals and groups in their communities using a range of formal and informal methods. We employ the Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) approach to empower communities to drive the development process themselves by identifying and mobilizing existing plus unrecognized assets

Community Resource mobilization

 We engage communities to identify community priorities, resources, needs and solutions in such a way to promote  representative participation, good governance, accountability and peaceful change. We encourage the community to take advantage of the existing local resources  before seeking external resources and take ownership of community Based Projects for sustenance
