Community Building International Network - Netherlands
CBINN is a non-profit organisation founded on October 25 2012 with the aim to eradicate poverty in African communities in the Diaspora and on the African Continent.
In collaboration with the local government, local actors and partners worldwide,
we design long-term sustainable and concrete programs to improve social and economic conditions and increase skills that promote independence and self determination.
We empower women, girls children, youth who experience every day challenges and design, implement and execute programs that benefit the entire community to uplift and add more value to lives.
Increasing skills, strenghtening communities, building villages one block at a time mean the participation of all people regardless of economic and education background making sure that everyone is an agent of change in his and her own surroundings.
We at CBINN believe that community abundance begins when people's needs and deficiencies are met. Together with the community we build a strong foundation from inside-0ut.
In our asset-based development approach for community-building we collaborate with local government, existing organizations, utilize, enhance and expand talents, release individual capacities and mobilize the community to become agents of change, keeping in mind the adherance to cultures and traditions without violating the human rights of others.
