Community Development

Sharana’s approach to community development (described at greater length in our Mission) is wholistic and integrative. To help children obtain their rights to education means supporting families who then do not need their children to work to supplement family incomes. That, in turn, means addressing childcare, medical, nutritional, emotional, economic, and other needs, as well as creating spaces where communities can gather to attend to the issues that concern them. Sharana’s programs oriented toward community development are further described in the links below.
