Gender and Development Community Change Project Model

Community Change is a transformational rather than an educational approach to change. It works at both the individual and community level.  The Community Change approach proposes that positive behavior change can happen where people talk openly to each other in a safe environment.    

The Community Change approach depends on creating opportunities for open communication within communities and at different levels of society, including people of different ages, sexes, minority groups, disabled and vulnerable groups.  The focus is on mobilizing different community groups to create positive changes in the community and in society.
