This programme focuses on economic development of communities severely affected by poverty. It functions at the following levels:

Local Economic Development:

Linking community based organizations and income generating projects with municipalities to promote implementation of local economic development plans

After many years of working on poverty alleviation projects Sinani has been encouraged to focus on broader economic development of partner communities affected by poverty. One of the key strategies identified for this higher level approach is through the government initiatives to develop Local Economic Development strategies and plans (LEDs).

Sinani believes that the problems around violence, poverty and HIV&Aids are integrally linked. The three programmes of the organisation have been designed to contribute towards one another.

Peace-Building Programme

This programme supports leadership and community based organizations to work towards sustainable peace and deeper reconciliation. The projects of this programme are:

  • Leadership Peace Forums: comprising influential traditional, political and religious leaders
  • Community Peace Processes: such as traditional cleansing ceremonies
  • Reconciliation and Healing Processes: group based residential trauma workshops, individual counseling and training in victim empowerment work
  • Respect Campaign: promoting respectful ways of interacting amongst different people in the community (click here to see our series of respect campaign posters)
  • Gender Based Violence: awareness raising and community dialogue around cultural and social aspects of violence towards women
