Edition 4. Charity? Sustainable community development from a position of community strength?
( …read a book about it we say too – Ed: )
Cormac Russell talks about the principles of finding the inner strength of communities and building confidence, skills and sustainable projects from that base. Not from community failure, but from community undiscovered skills and drive.
Although from the middle of the last decade, this is a timely and refreshing reminder of the best principles of community development, whether through enterprise or social change…to help others to help themselves and to celebrate their inherent community capacities too.
