About this grant

The West Coast Community Foundation was established in 2001 to support community development in the West Coast district of the Western Cape Province of South Africa. The grantee makes grants, conducts training on various topics related to community development, and facilitates networking opportunities for community-based organizations in this area. Previous support from the Mott Foundation assisted the grantee to promote an asset-based approach and encourage communities to use available resources to drive their own development and be able to hold government accountable. This grant increase will enable the grantee’s staff to attend a training-of-trainers program on the asset-based community development approach to strengthen its training capacity.
