COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT AND TRAINING SUB-THEME

COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT AND TRAINING (CET)– sub thematic area within the EMPOWERMENT AND EDUCATION thematic area focuses on  a holistic approach grounded on principles of empowerment, human rights, inclusion, social justice, self-determination and collective action. 

Our focus is developing  concepts that connect  people to personal, first-hand experiences and familiar, accessible examples with a purpose of building  communities based on justice, equality and mutual respect so that everyone can take part in the issues that affect their lives. 

Our CET is based on a learning process that is geared towards a change in behaviour and learning by doing, to increase community competence and capacity to manage their own lives. Our approach is anchored on attributes like attitudes and values, capacity building, ,skills acquisition, knowledge retention etc that give the community opportunities to apply learning in practical real-life settings .
