ABCD | Outreach

ABCD | Asset-Based Community Development builds on the assets that are already found in the community and mobilizes individuals, associations, and institutions to come together to build on their assets.

Community-driven development rather than development driven by external agencies.

  • Identifying individual gifts, skills, and capacities. There are many ways of trying to elicitindividual gifts, skills and capacities. The important thing is to ensure that this is not just a data gathering exercise, but a way in which people feel that their abilities and contributions are appreciated.
  • Strengthens people’s confidence in their own capacities and inspires them to take action
  • Participatory approaches to development, which are based on principles of empowerment andownership of the development process
  • Efforts to strengthen our economical, social, and spiritual society. Focused on how to engagepeople as citizens (rather than clients) in development, and how to make local governance more effective and responsive.

ABCD is a process of self-mobilization and organizing for change. Those that serve in this ministry are committed individuals looking to proactively improve their community in building relationship and to build connections. Freely sharing of talents and gifts in discovering each other’s strength and resources, and to think about how to build on what is already in the community.
