Guiding a community of 100,000 people to facilitate change by establishing development strategies for a 20-year period (Benin)
Municipal officials, civil society organizations and local residents
In the wake of Sô Ava‘s five-year community development plan, the network of community associations and the commune sought to stimulate strategic thinking based on local residents’ reflections on their future.
As part of our 10-year commitment with the commune, we designed and facilitated a workshop to help 20 participants establish a long-term vision and develop strategies that would better position their community in relation to its donors and potential partners.
- A vision for the basis of communal development from 2015 forward
- A discussion by civil society actors of their vision and priorities
- Choosing and building sustainable partnerships for future results
