Building capacities: Community and branch development

Building Capacities: Best Practices in Asia Pacific (4/5)

Red Cross and Red Crescent societies mobilize people at community level to improve the lives of the vulnerable. They achieve this by involving them in planning services that meet their own identified needs and building their long-term strengths to manage themselves. 

This film contains many examples of work which show that strong branches mean strong communities and vice versa.

In this five films series, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies profiles organizational best practices in Gender and Diversity, Resource Mobilisation, Youth and Volunteers, Participatory Planning, and Community and Branch Development. Building Capacities features insights and interviews with volunteers, beneficiaries and leaders from Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies including Australia, Cambodia, Mongolia and Nepal. The series was produced by the Asia Pacific zone under the direction of the Organizational Development unit.
