Many problems can best be solved and many needs can best be met at the social level. Within the broad frame of its organizational mission, every civil society group or organization must remain responsive to emerging needs it can address.

This course teaches participants to conduct a social audit, recognize their unique strengths and resources for addressing needs and problems, identify revenue resources, and develop a plan that is likely to have a high social impact. The course also shows participants how to determine whether they should seek government support for their efforts.
