Social Empowerment

Becoming more resilient not only holds the potential to save lives and billions in recovery dollars and economic losses, it also encourages social equity and connectedness, fostering communities that grow and recover in ways that make them stronger than before.

Institute for Sustainable Communities

Since children are part of families who are part of communities, many aspects of child well-being can only be achieved at community level. Therefore, community resilience is not an objective in itself, but a pathway to improve the opportunities of children in a sustainable way. Help a Child’s main activities on community empowerment are:

  • Facilitation and coaching of self-help groups and cluster level associations
  • Good governance
  • Peace-building
  • Disability inclusion
