About US:
Spark equips local
governments, civil society organizations and NGOs with a tested approach and
accompanying tools for activating villages to drive their own planning and
development. Spark’s novel Facilitated Collective Action Process (FCAP) enables
remote villages to design and launch their own communal projects, from schools
to farms. To date, over 200 communities across six countries have completed
this process. At the heart of Spark’s approach are weekly meetings, in which
women and men, young and old, sit together and plan for their community’s
future. Each village democratically elects a leadership committee, defines
communal goals, plans a project and establishes a village savings group. As a
part of the process, villages receive a seed fund of up to 8,000 USD to make
project ideas a reality. Through this approach, Spark enables institutions to
put resources and power directly into the hands of those they serve.
