Community Based Projects

​​​​​​Community Based Projects (CBPs) serve as a unique opportunity for MCF scholarship recipients to build their capacities on community development work, while tackling challenges identified in the local community. The CBPs are developed and implemented under CCECS guidance and with the full participation of community partners and stakeholders. This process begins by securing consensus on a general theme, and progresses as students carry out desk research, on-site rapid assessment, and stakeholder mapping to better understand the context and identify relevant group(s), individual(s) and organization(s) that they will partner with for project implementation. Students then work together to develop a comprehensive proposal, after which approved projects are set on the track for implementation under CCECS supervision.​​
