Community Development is one of WISE's key approaches to achieving WISE's vision of a more equitable and sustainable Southeast Asia. By 'community development', we mean that the community takes ownership of of the decisions that affect their lives, where the people's, not WISE's, concerns are centred. We encourage ownership by emphasising active participation and collective action in our projects.
