Non-profit organizations, often commonly referred to as NPOs, play an essential part in the process of developing healthy communities by delivering essential services to members of the population who are at the greatest risk.

The ever-increasing needs and difficulties in our communities, combined with the limited resources that are made available by the government, present non-profit organizations with the challenge of accomplishing even more with fewer resources, which places additional strain on their already limited resources. As a consequence of this, many non-profit organizations are in critical need of help that would enable them to enhance their operations, make it possible for them to perform their services in a more effective manner, and ultimately contribute to the growth and development of a community.

NPO Registration Assistance and Mentoring

The Co-op Community Trust facilitates NPO registration and mentoring services to non-profit organizations (NPOs). Together, we strive to expand and thrive, employing an Asset-Based Community Development approach.

When we get involved in a community, we throw ourselves wholeheartedly into efforts to improve it and to enable managers to improve management systems.

What exactly does capacity building through ABCD approach mean?

Building an organization's capacity is not simply about increasing an organization's overall capabilities; rather, it is about the non-profit organization’s ability to realize the potential assets at its disposal and mobilize the assets to help with the development of the NPO, the management, employees, and the community. Building an organization's capabilities is an investment in the organization's overall efficiency as well as its long-term viability. When capacity development is done well, it develops a non-profit organization's ability to fulfil its mission over time, which in turn enhances the NPO's potential to make a good impact on people's lives and on the communities in which they reside.

Using the ABCD method is not a one-time attempt to improve short-term effectiveness; rather, it is a continual improvement strategy toward the establishment of an organization that is both effective and sustainable.

Why is the ABCD approach so important in capacity building?

The ability of non-profit organizations and their leaders to develop competencies and skills thatimg 20220914 140709 can make them more effective and sustainable is made possible through this approach. This increases the potential for NPOs to improve people's lives and assist them to discover their strengths and find their own solutions to problems.
