Community Empowerment/Thirty Seconds
Thirty Seconds Description
The Community Empowerment Collective (CEC) is a web-based not-for-profit association working to produce, translate, and make available free training material for strengthening communities to combat poverty. The CEC training starts with the idea that capacity is developed when the community is stimulated to develop itself, and emphasises “How-to” rather than theory about the empowerment methodology. Through the training materials, on line volunteers translate these into over three dozen languages, with particular emphasis on those spoken where poverty is greatest, reaching out to support community mobilisers working to empower their own communities across the globe.
