Society at large has come to realise that the fortunes of communities are intrinsically linked to their own. That the problems marginalised communities face is ‘a poverty of opportunity’ that requires more emphasis on development and less on aid. That the challenges are systemic by nature, which means the solutions need to be systemic also. 

WHY SHOULD COMMUNITIES ENGAGE? 

Communities are the primary beneficiary of the programs. They typically want greater control over their own development needs, they want employment and a future for their youth and the associated wealth generated to be used to improve their long term quality of life.

WHY SHOULD GOVERNMENT AGENCIES ENGAGE? 

Governments globally want more self determining communities and greater coordination of programming from both the public and private sectors to support long term social, environmental and economic development. 

WHY SHOULD NGO'S ENGAGE? 

NGO’s want to deliver their programming and create impacts linked to the specific needs of the beneficiaries they are targeting. They need reliable funding and more targeted channel into communities to achieve this.

WHY SHOULD BUSINESSES ENGAGE? 

Businesses natural tendency is identify ways to grow and invest in new talent, new opportunities and new markets.

WHY SHOULD GRANT FUNDERS AND INVESTORS ENGAGE?

Funders and investors want good projects and business propositions to invest in and currently there is plentiful capital available for support, but a severe lack of pipeline (new projects) for their consideration.
