Many people in Africa live in poverty and in poor communities. The conditions in the rural areas are even worse than the urban areas. One may wonder why the abysmal gap despite local, national and international developmental efforts of the past. A New Community Development Paradigm for Africa presents a paradigm shift and how to improve our Communities in Africa in the 21st Century and bring development next door. This course describes how communal developmental processes can be initiated, validated and executed by members of a Community in line with government at all levels. Participants will learn the importance of a new community development paradigm and development lessons from the past and opportunities for the future.

Understand the need for a new Community development paradigm;
Understand a new Community development paradigm for African countries and
