3.  LONG TERM STRATEGY.
CCDD believes that capacity building is the missing link in Africans` development. Our long term strategy therefore is to build both our internal capacity and that of community leaders to handle and manage all developmental programs and projects in their diversity and complexity in the African continent. We are also working to develop a network of NGO`s and CBO`s in the rural and urban initiatives that aim to improve the quality of life so as to share knowledge and experiences. We would like to use our experiences to influence policy and strategies in development throughout Africa. The organization seeks also to pursue activities to relief suffering, promote the interest of the poor, protect the environment, provide basic services and undertake community development.
