Advancing Rural Communities
Community Development Network focuses on rural poverty reduction, working with poor rural and marginalised populations to eliminate poverty, hunger and malnutrition; raise their productivity and incomes and improve the quality of their lives. CDN has recognized that vulnerable groups can and do contribute to economic growth. These groups have shown that they can join the mainstream of social and economic development; provided the causes of their poverty are understood and enabling conditions for development are created.
We design and implement projects in very different natural socio-economic and cultural environments. Many CDN-supported projects and programs are carried out in remote areas and have targeted some of the poorest and most deprived segments of the rural population. We work with professional advisors, development leaders and youth ambassadors. It is at this stage that we deliberate on youth ideas, community challenges, unexploited opportunities, practical solutions and design viable projects to respond to poverty and societal challenges.
