When planning programmes in a community, our ABCD approach includes Community Needs Assessments (CNA). This consists of surveys we conduct to gather as much information as possible in a certain area. This assists us in designing programmes that meet both the needs of our communities and the requirements of our clients.

Other research activities include:

  • Impact Assessments for all our programme entrepreneurs
  • Monitoring and Evaluation activities (external partnerships)
  • Social Anthropological research to increase our knowledge and understanding of rural communities and the challenges and opportunities in their social interaction and integration.
