RESDO understanding that successful projects are designed around the specific needs of the community they are meant to serve, will do assessments and discuss with the local communities when planning a program. Each community faces different challenges and needs and designing programs around these unique challenges and needs makes our programs are more effective and efficient. This specialized design also attracts greater involvements and support from the community we serve in. involving the community in the planning and decision making of programs strengthens the relationship between RESDO, the communities and the projects. Community members feel more ownership and responsibility for the projects and are more likely to be invested in project’s success and effectiveness. Community involvement can also increase the likelihood of a successful projects handover from the organization to the community.
