Reaching the vulnerable kids form the grassroots

The project took important steps to achieve good outcomes. It involves the mobilization and engagement with the community, and it included primarily the community members in order to achieve goals.  The mobilization for the community members is crucial because it helps articulate local people’s aspiration even as they develop from early reactions to larger and more definite goals and objectives.

Burundi Empowerment Project maintains that the mobilisation helped shaped the theory of change and objectives of the projects. This included a notion of what were the political strategies involved, change social attitudes and behaviours in target settings. Likewise, the mobilisation helps bring together the members of the community, resources and other needs  they require.

Our strategic plan was to mobilize the community and invite them through a formal procedure in order to discuss the issues, which affect them. During the mobilization process, the invitation is  sent to the church, school and community leaders, and they identify children who require the support.  Given that the Burundi Empowerment project is a led- community project, the members will discuss, assess explore their assets and ability to contribute in this project that fits the village community needs.



The Burundi Empowerment Project worked alongside school board, the principal, teacher Representatives (Nyabenda Patrice), local community leader( Karori) and church leaders.  The meeting helped conduct a holistic assessment of Musave village needs and community –led initiatives
