Om Habibeh Foundation (OHF) presents an action entitled Improving Local Development Dynamics (ILDD). The overall objective of the Action is to support the European Commission’s objective to strengthen Civil Society Organizations (CSO)and Local Authorities (LA) by enhancing the role and effectiveness of 36 civil societies organizations and to deliver inclusive and gender responsive development services in villages in four districts of Aswan governorate: Kom Ombo, Daraw, Aswan, and Edfu.
To achieve this, the action will enable communities to optimize the resources available to them and work as a cohesive unit, and Directly Target Vulnerable Groups – by strengthening LAs and CSOs to target vulnerable groups who are less able to support themselves. Through these efforts, development actors will build trust between communities while investing in women, whose success will strengthen the local economy and society overall.
The Action will focus on benefitting disadvantaged groups within the community, primarily women and chronically ill persons, while strengthening the capacity of CSOs. Women, youth and marginalized communities are not presently able to take part in the decision-making structures of CSO boards that are primarily composed of elderly men from influential families, thus reinforcing cultural norms and the limitations of women’s access and control over resources.
