Capacity & Leadership

Updated: Apr 7

Capacity building begins from within. ECO-Action is committed to make long-term investments in building community capacity that lead to results. We begin by listening, then though providing guidance and coaching help the communities’ vision of a better future to emerge. Developing the capabilities of community leaders is a key element of this community organizing strategy. ECO-Action organizes communities and works with them to strengthen local leadership. One way that we do this is by training local leaders to train others, an approach known as “Train the Trainer.”
