According to UNESCO’s definition, developmental activities are ‘conscious and scientific processes that involve five elements: population, social setup, environment, resources and technology; which when used proportionately and in a qualitative manner ensure quality of life at the macro and micro levels’. It is very important for you, as a community development worker (CDW), to have a thorough understanding of all the developmental needs and activities of a community.
The Diploma in Social Work & Community Development is intended to equip the students with knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to participate actively and take the lead in managing social development in the society. The graduates will be involved in mobilizing community members to come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems.
