This Community Volunteer Programme is the heart of an ecosystem of social change where initiatives are both mutually beneficial and dependent. The approach of this project is termed ‘Adaptive Development’.  We listen and learn about what the community needs and we provide tools that can be used in inspiring and unintended positive ways. Our start point is our ethos: even the poorest of communities are resources rich.
