THIS IS WHO WE ARE
Menelik Education’s believes that communities irrespective of where they are in the world, are a rich source of energy, creativity and talent. They are made up of people with rich and diverse backgrounds who each have something to contribute to making their community a better place to live in. Central, local, and international governments need to help communities to work together and release that potential to create a more prosperous and fairer world.
Menelik Education is committed to support communities in the areas in which it operates, such as Cambridgeshire in the UK, or Kinshasa, in the D.R. Congo, by supporting them to do things for themselves and having their voices heard in the planning and delivery of services.
What are the benefits of empowering communities?
Where communities are empowered we see a range of benefits: local democratic participation boosted; increased confidence and skills among local people; higher numbers of people volunteering in their communities; and more satisfaction with quality of life in a local neighbourhood. Better community engagement and participation leads to the delivery of better, more responsive services and better outcomes for communities.
What is Menelik Education doing to empower communities?
Menelik Education is taking forward action in a number of areas and is working closely with local authorities and partners to help support and promote community empowerment and engagement.
