Community DevelopmentCommunity DevelopmentThe community development work of Humana People to People Botswana is made up of the Child Aid Programme, Women Eco¬nomic Empowerment project called (Grassroots Growing Our Wealth (GROW) and In¬formal play groups. What is core in the community development programs is the mo¬bilization and organization of people to create change in their own lives by identifying what is needed in a community to organizing groups to take action and enhance social cohesion.
The Community Development works through Village Action Groups (VAGs) which organizes people together to solve pressing issues facing families and children. The VAGs work in close cooperation with traditional lead¬erships, health (DHMTs) and education institutions, government agencies, local organizations and faith-based groups to bring about the desired change. Through the Community development project, Humana People to people Botswana contributes to the eradication of abject poverty in Botswana which is one of the defining priorities of the government as per the country’s national vision, 2036. The project reached 6,000 families both in Ghanzi and Selebi Phikwe
