Community Building Program

Community Building Program
Student's Name:
Institutional Affiliation:
The idea of establishing the community building session is a program that will mark a
historical event in the lives and socio-economic standards of the many communities that we live
in. The idea of community building session is an integrated plan for the community as the
Nominal Technique group, totalling up to about 10 members, and a numerous involvement of
other stakeholders, such as the Governments, The Local Management Authority and the Locals
groups in the communities (McLaughlin, 2011).
The test for the idea is based on the interests of the persons in the communities with the
concept and idea of the problems that face. The program is foreseen with an integrated
management and a wide scope of stakeholders. As a project manager, I keep the ball rolling for
the actual betterment of the project and for mutual benefits of the surrounding societies, in regard
to my effort to mobilize and solicit for resources and funds for the sustainability of the project in
capacity building process
The Problem that Led to the Establishment of the program
The members of the community have for a long time suffered through a scarce of water
resources and other problems to meet their daily needs and to develop on their agendas in their
priorities as a community. The problem of water scarcity has been caused by poor methods of
water harvesting and water management, and therefore this program is aimed at mobilizing
resources over dam construction to meet the needs of the community at large.
The objectives of the program
1. To identify resource mobilization strategy to be used by the program
2. To estimate the resource needs for the establishment of the program
3. To establish the resource mobilization process for the community building program
4. To estimate the program budget
5. To establish the project sustainability drives
Understanding of the community building strategy
The community building strategy as per the National data is based on resource sourcing
from individuals and donors, therefore in a success for our resource mobilization strategy, we
need to consider
1. The scope of the program
The program is a multidimensional project idea that requires the integrated efforts of the
holistic approach of different sectors and stakeholders. The program will cover the political,
economic and social aspects of a community.
2. The category of the program
This is a direct program that requires the attention and efforts of the stakeholders and the
communities at large. The program has the direct impacts to the surrounding communities and
the beneficiaries.
3. Plan for views collection for the program
The team will conduct a survey through the stratified random sample of the community
elders to give views on the proposed project in relation to their needs and cultural fitness of the
project. The community here acts as the major decision-makers in accepting the project or not. In
this view, it helps understand the full potential needs of the community and the relevant impacts
of the program (Minkler, 2005).
4. Data analysis
This is the stage where we gauge the need and importance of the program. It enables the
team to understand the need-driven paths of the proposed needs of the program and how it is
being received by the members of the community at large.
5. Dissemination of results
This is a point where the final decision of the stakeholders and the community at larger
dictate the way forward for the program whether it fits the needs of the community or not.
Estimating the resource needs for the community building program
The estimation of the resource needs for the project will establish the capacity and level
of the program needs to be proposed. In this case, the project estimation derives the size of the
project and what it requires in its implementation process; therefore, the following aspects need
to be considered (Minkler, 2005).
I. Assessment of the situation
This is the assessment of the program and the where it should be conducted and whether
it is sustainable or not, by this, an environmental impact assessment is required to measure the
fitness of the project. In site analysis, it enables to predict the impacts before and after the
ii. Estimation of the need for the program
At this point, the program estimates are drafted and analyzed for the demand to be
measured in order to know the capacity of the project and the need coverage for the resources

The resource mobilization process for the program
As the team, therefore we need to consider the aspects that entail the whole process in
order to understand the needs of the project and its importance to the surrounding communities.
In resource mobilization there we will consider the following;
Identifying the potential resource sources
This helps to identify the resource sources that will support the project and the levels of
the project need satisfaction. This will determine the drive taken for the project, the source
Allocations from the government
Contributions from private donors
Foreign assistance
Public revenue raising effort
User fee
Ministry of water and irrigation
1. Methodologies for resource mobilization
These are the procedures for sourcing for the resources and the ways of getting the
resources. The methodologies at times consider the organizational structure of the team,
communication and prospection of the team and the relationship building of the donor,
contributor and the benefactor (Minkler, 2005). Therefore, for resource mobilization, the
following methodologies need to be put in place.
i. Public campaigns to sensitize on the project needs
ii. Conducting survey on community needs and interests thereby spreading the
message about the project
iii. Creating a strong mobilization team to outsource resources from the community
and other sources
iv. Training the mobilization team on techniques of sourcing for resources
v. Designing of the revenue collection material to enable raise funds
All in all, resources are not created they are made, therefore for the success of this
community building program to go through and be successful, it is the effort of the project team
and the community members to work on the program effectively with a positive mindset and
