• ASAP includes an asset based community development (ABCD) approach as we strengthen existing solutions to care of orphaned and vulnerable children in deeply rural communities.
  • We aid proactive groups of women to formalise as Community Based Organisaions (CBO) and walk alongside them for a six year term, on average. We facilitate processes to assist CBOs to develop their own ideas and action plans as part of their self-owned, sustainable long term solutions. We are committed to process driven development.
  • Our relationship with rural community groups can be characterised as a partnership with shared vision.
  • Our development model, developed in collaboration with grass-roots groups, tried and tested over 14 years, informs our response to the development goals of each unique group.
  • Local stakeholders (the chief, elders, government) are all engaged in each step of our partnerships with local communities to ensure buy-in and long-term support.
  • Our in-house facilitation team speak the local languages of Xhosa and Sotho fluently and embody a deep respect and understanding of local cultures.
  • Our field office is in Matatiele because we form long term relationships with communities, the nature of which changes over time. We are committed to working in this challenged region.
