We ensure we work with community leaders, government officers and existing CBOs so that we can create links between them and the excluded people in their communities.
We work in an inclusive way – focusing on including those who are least likely to become involved without opportunity, support and encouragement.

Beneficiaries get involved in planning, assessing the progress of PCA’s projects. We have developed a PCA participatory evaluation process to evaluate our projects which make sure they offer full, active, and meaningful participation for beneficiaries to assess the progress of projects.
