Transformational Community Development (TCD)

What is Transformational Community Development (TCD)?

Transformational Community Development (TCD) is a process developed by Global Hope Network International. It is an approach to community development that seeks to empower and transform communities by involving local people in the planning and implementation of development initiatives. The approach emphasizes the importance of community ownership and participation in the development process.

Transformational community development involves a holistic approach to development, focusing not only on economic growth but also on social, cultural, and environmental factors. It emphasizes the importance of community participation and engagement, and seeks to build strong, self-reliant communities that are able to identify their own needs, develop their own solutions, and implement their own projects.

Key elements of transformational community development include community participation, capacity building, empowerment, sustainability, and social justice. The approach recognizes that communities are diverse and complex, and that development initiatives must be tailored to meet the specific needs and circumstances of each community.

Overall, transformational community development seeks to create a more equitable and just society by empowering communities to take charge of their own development and to build a better future for themselves and future generations.
