CCODERs Roll-Out of Projects and Ongoing Programs
CCODERs Tripod model of Development aims to create a “Total Human Development” approach. In order to fulfill this, CCODER first helps a community establish its own supportive and collaborative infrastructure and through formations of Community Development Committess (CDCs) and then through its promotion of Socio-Economic Activities. The Socio Economic Activities include:
- Societal Building: Health, Schools and Environmental issues
- Economic increasing: Community Bank, Income Generating activities and Increasing market access
Projects that aim to accomplish these goals are rolled out annually to areas that CCODER has established CDCs in. CCODER also works to expand its CDC base and increase the community approach to development through formation of supportive collaborative groups. Here you will find a more descriptive explanation of what kinds of projects CCODER implements.
Increasing Economic Activity
It is a common fact in development that increasing ones economic standing correlates to the increase of standard of living. Whichever the cause or the effect is unimportant, however, that to promote both at the same time, is the aim of CCODERs third element to Total Human Development. As infrastructure building, and maintaining, is promoted through the society building activities, the development framework would be incomplete without prompting economic activities. Economic activities generally include those which are income-generating, refer to market access and job creation. Some projects that CCODER promotes are:
- Domestication, Cultivation and Marketing of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants, generally in coordination with a partner of CCODER
- Entrepreneurship and business services development
- Community Banking, which involves a package developed by CCODER
- Community Tourism
Society building activities which CCODER promotes are those which establish effective institutions and increase capacity. To name a few:
- Education through training courses or workshops that increase community awareness, promotes leadership development or gender sensitization.
- Education through the development of community schools, creating scholarship programs and international linkages with other schools for exchange programs.
- Infrastructure development through CDC formation, creation of networks between communities, regions, districts and nationally.
- Business As Usual actions including participatory planning, monitoring and evaluation of programs, documentation and reporting
- Health Systems through all parts of creation, development, and running of the infrastructure for health information awareness, sanitation, creation of a health insurance system, and running mobile clinics. (More information in proposed projects)
- Promotion of bio-diversity conservation through small scale waste and water management, trail improvement, plantation
- Disability and disadvantaged participation in communities along with awareness raising workshops, and counseling.
