Strategies for Empowerment: Lessons from Grass-Roots

Side Event CSocD

In 2013, non-governmental organizations ( NGOs) that participated in a 2009 survey on social integration were surveyed to investigate their progress since 2009.  The respondents, including Mary Ward Center, Chicago spanned six continents.  They serve a wide range of people.  Their responses shed light on effective practices to increase empowerment.   These results, along with the specific experience of a group in Zambia and another in the US, served as content for a side –event held during the Commission on Social Development.
