This increases the ability of the community to demand accountability in all their affairs, from leaders and county officials. It reinforces the community’s belief in the value of their own development choices and efforts.
These community management structures are not parallel structures, but are built upon local institutions, promoting equitable representation and participation.
Human resource development is an essential part of ATUDIS’s development work. This means ensuring that the community is trained and skilled, as well as organized, to maximize their potential of community to take hold of its own development.
ATUDIS strongly believes in maximizing its impact by transferring field experiences into knowledge to influence the development policies and practices of NGOs, donors and government agencies. This is important for working towards the long-term goal of eradicating poverty.
