This one may be familiar to you:
“Give somebody a fish and he has food for one day. Teach him how to fish and he will have food for his entire life.”
But what if that somebody does not like fish, or fishing? Or what if there’s no fish around? What if our fishing style is not working over there? Or what if it is only culturally appropriate to eat fish?
SEVEN SENSES’ vision is a world where people are empowered to tackle community issues and wicked problems amongst themselves, independently from traditional forms of western aid. SEVEN SENSES’ work -conducting Participatory Action Research worldwide- is focused on facilitating people in discovering what fits their socio-cultural context in tackling those community issues, using local talent, manpower, materials and the like. As such, the local community co-creates interventions that are very cost-efficient and that tackle the problem by its roots.
