Strategic Planning of the CSR family
Community Organizing and Partnership Development
Basic activities undertaken in community integration are Community Assessment and Participatory Rapid Appraisal Workshop. The Barangay Council and other community leaders are a big help to the CSR in identifying prospective target participants.
Before the start of any intervention, an orientation about the programs and services of SCFI was conducted to target participants. It is strongly emphasized that the foundation is a partner institution in any community development together with the barangay council and other stakeholders in the community.
