Welcome to Community organization Training Programme Trust

Community Organization (CO) is a development approach that facilitates the building of the Peoples Organizations (P.O) or Community Based Organizations (C.B.O) where by people through an experiential process learn to overcome passivity and fear and become empowered to actively participate in matters that affect them. Throughout the process of CO people start to come together to address the issues that affect them from single to complex ones. Gradually through a series of Action Reflection Action the people realize the need to form their organization. The Community Organizing process revolves around concrete local issues as the best starting point for conscientisation and motivating people for action. Gradually ad hoc leadership structures are created which eventually lead to more complex and permanent leadership with formal decision making processes. CO creates democratic leadership and active participation of the members in the peoples organization.
