IDS-355 Community Development
A study of the theories, problems and methods associated with international development work at the community level. Topics include community mapping, survey and assessment methods, project planning and evaluation, community development practices, grant writing, organizational development and capacity building, donor-client relationships, organizational partnerships, advocacy, and fund raising. Special attention is given to the way Christian development organizations carry out these methods. Most of the course is directed toward international community development experiences, but some case studies and illustrations are also taken from a North American context. Prerequisite: IDS 201, SPHO 205 or permission of instructor.
