Community Support and Development Programs

What are Community Support and Development Programs?

Our goal at the Community Support and Development Pillar is to increase community residents' participation and engagement by breaking down structural barriers. We aim to achieve this by focusing on priority neighbourhoods, improving residents' capacity to participate in neighbourhood and community activities, and fostering a greater sense of belonging.

“Community development is an inclusive process whereby community members become engaged, educated and able to generate and implement collective solutions to shared concerns (Gray, 2019, p.15).”

Poverty Reduction Programs

What are Poverty Reduction Programs?

Our goal at the Poverty Reduction Pillar is to address and alleviate poverty through an innovative and multifaceted approach that seamlessly blends immediate assistance with long-term empowerment strategies. We achieve our goal by providing essential food and nutritional support while embracing innovative urban agriculture and indoor farming to enhance community self-reliance. Our initiatives also focus on nurturing youth entrepreneurship with creative methods and ensuring efficient, fair distribution of resources.


By integrating these innovative strategies, we aim to address immediate needs and foster sustainable, community-driven solutions against poverty.
