THE NCBA CLUSA APPROACH
Based on the seven cooperative principles, the “NCBA CLUSA Approach” asserts that our clients are the decision-makers when it comes to solving their communities’ most pressing development needs. At the core of this community-led approach is the empowerment of people to articulate, promote and manage sustainable, locally generated solutions. Our approach focuses on enhancing the organizational capacity of cooperatives, associations, Civil Society Organizations, local businesses and other entities through practical training in problem-solving, entrepreneurial skills, business skills, technical skills and governance processes.
