“Community Development is a process designed to create conditions of economic and social progress for the whole community with its active participation and fullest possible reliance upon the community’s initiative.”
Our work in Medie, Ghana is focussed on youth inspired community development projects. Our team in Medie work with the community to engage, educate, inspire and support development of projects that will impact the well-being of others.
Our model for community programme design is based on the socio-ecological model. We work to influence at 4 levels:
- Individual (knowledge, skills, and motivation of an individual)
- Interpersonal (An individual’s relationship with others)
- Organisational (Working with institutions such as schools)
- Community (Community resources that promote social norms)

Advancing Global Citizenship
We believe a global citizen is a person who is aware of the wider world and has a sense of their own role and ability to make a change. A person who celebrates diversity and uses their personal power to raise awareness of causes and issues they are passionate about. It is through learning to understand yourself and those around you that confidence to act to make the world a more sustainable world emerges. All our programmes are designed with our framework for global citizenship in mind.
