    Ready to be a Change Agent

    “I feel like I have a really good baseline understanding of all the aspects of community development and
    I now feel like I’m more capable of applying to an NGO for work experience. Amongst the courses,
    although Strategic Planning and Result Based Management were difficult and challenging because I’d
    never been exposed to them before, I think it’s really good, practical knowledge.”

    Allow the Community to Lead

    My learning for development is to empower the people and change attitudes to break the cycle of
    dependence. The way to do this is Bala Vikasa way (ABCD model). You relate people to assets and make
    them feel stronger. The recognition of strengths, gifts, talents and assets of individual and communities
    are more likely to produce change. As community development practitioners we must step back and
    allow the community to lead. Our role is to act as a facilitator. It was quite a moving experience to visit
    the Gangadevipalli village and see this approach in action.

    High-Value Training Programs

    Bala Vikasa’s extensive experience in rural development, particularly in implementing women’s and
    widows’ empowerment initiatives through community mobilisation, adds significant value to training
    programs, making them highly insightful. The exposure from field visits to various development
    initiatives gives participants a whole new perspective and also helps them find innovative solutions
    to their community problems.
