The basics of Community development

 

Community development in broader sense means the measures that the civic leaders and responsible citizens take to improve varied features of a community.

 

The process of community development provides skills to the people to bring about change in their own community. The skills provided concentrate on building a powerful group with a common aim. The process of Community development entails social justice and mutual respect in order to successfully develop a credible community. People who contribute in the development are facilitated for their work.

 

The concept of Community development supports equality, reciprocity, accountability as its core properties. People try to identify problems of the community. Social activists or civil servants use economic and political resources that are needed in the Community development process. Community-based participatory research or CBPR is a form of community development that links resources to community problems in a beneficial manner.

 

Social capital formation, political participatory development and community empowerment and development are various approaches for community development. This process aims to achieve implicit goals of community for better life through combined effort. During 1960s, the concept of community development slowly began to complement and replace the idea of urban renewal. Some of the Community development examples are Mahatma Gandhi adopting African community and introducing the community development concept to the Indian independence movement and Robert Kennedy’s local nonprofit organizations. Several non-profit organizations for these processes are Community development corporations, Enterprise Foundation, Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation and Local Initiatives Support Corporation.

 

The workers of Community development work along with people of various communities to help built relationships with important people and organizations. The process provides platform for non-formal learning which helps increase the capacity of the communities. Development work is possible only when people act together to foster social and economic development. The core values of any process that aims for Community development are education, training and collective action.
