How We Do It
Our Motto: One step can change a life
Our advocacy initiatives advance systemic approaches to ensure that our objective to make everyone live a meaningful life becomes a reality. We conduct our advocacy efforts in a nonconfrontational and nonpartisan way.
We believe that our work serves as a discernible demonstration of God’s love for both communities and individuals. Most communities where CIPaD works are very religious, and we believe that effective faith engagement in these contexts also plays a key part in the success of our programmes.
To achieve our goal of sustained well-being of all within families and communities, especially the most vulnerable, the sustainability of improvements brought about through our work is essential.
Poverty alone is not a comprehensive marker of deprivation. Ethnicity, gender, religion, place of residence, disability status, age, HIV/AIDS status, sexual orientation or other stigmatised markers, confer disadvantage that excludes people from a range of processes and opportunities.
Helping communities speak up for better services is a positive social accountability approach CIPaD uses to make Citizen Voice and Action be heard, equips communities to hold their own governments accountable for improvements to basic services.
Science and Technology provides unique opportunities to address many education challenges, fragile contexts health issues, environmental challenges and conflict environments, leading to improvements of life.
At CIPaD, we establish a robust and regular monitoring system that ensures issues are addressed early rather than towards the end of a project. The system works with stakeholders and the community to help with monitoring, documenting and respond to any changes reported throughout the project cycle.
