It is a process whereby community members come together to take collective actions and generate solutions to common problems. Community well-being (spiritual, physical, social, economic, educational, environmental, athletic, and cultural) evolves from collective actions being taken at a grassroots level. Its scope could range from small initiatives within a small group or to large initiatives that involve the broader community.
This is what Developing Our World is all about. We are committed to serve people at the grassroots level from the bottom up approach, always respecting their values, cultures, and traditions. We build relationships, value people's assets, and serve along side the community. We also work together as team so we can learn from each other, avoid dependency, and build up trust through our work together. And, we raise questions about the status quo, challenge what does not work, and leverage processes that move communities out of broken systems.
In order to reach this level of development, we must humble ourselves and be vulnerable enough to accept that we are here to learn from each other and serve others in their own environment and community without prejudice and discrimination. We must honor others' skills and gifts.
