ABOUT PLACE CAMEROON
“We operate on the grounds that everyone has a right to make positive choices about their personal wellbeing and development.”
How we think things has to be done
Modifying community programs to accommodate inclusive participation of community members and stakeholders in program design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
Holding those in power to be answerable to the community that elected them and to be accountable for the decisions, resources and services placed in their management, in an open and transparent way.
Scaling up leadership and managerial competence of marginalized groups in order to improve their capacity to participate, innovate and engage in local initiatives.
Supporting and enabling community members to defend and promote their rights, by exercising their freedom to express their views and concerns.
Adapting and designing approaches that ensure the representation of all members of the community, including minority and marginalized and vulnerable groups that include:
- People living with disability
- Women, young women, young people and adolescents
- Minority tribes
- Refugees and the internally displaced
- To make their voice heard in policy formation, implementation and service delivery.
The effectiveness of community-driven interventions at local levels is highly conditioned by the capacity for collective action.
