Civil Society Development

True democracy cannot survive without the participation of citizens. Often, the way for citizens to participate is in grassroots groups that mobilize citizens to take charge of their own development.

World Education promotes and strengthens such indigenous organizations, particularly at the community level, to foster democracy and the development of civil society. Community organizations can include parent associations, village health committees, local AIDS committees, and women's savings and credit clubs.

World Education equips people with the financial, practical, organizational, and strategic planning skills they need to manage local organizations effectively. Training typically includes planning, budgeting, fundraising, financial accounting, and good governance.

World Education helps organizations understand the importance of organizational transparency and accountability to the larger community. World Education also builds-in opportunities for people working in local organizations to directly apply their skills through community participation in actively designing, executing, managing, and evaluating initiatives addressing community priorities.
