The ONE Thing You Need to Know about Development

At Metamorphic, development is a vital part of what we do. We are all about transformation, and community development is a step towards that.

 

There needs to be more understanding around the term development. Many well-intentioned people and organisations want to help people, so they turn to “relief” or “development.”

 

However, this often translates to running projects or building buildings.

 

The result is disempowered, confused people. Whether rich or poor, we can all feel disrespected if others do everything for us rather than empowering us to do it ourselves.

 

So what is the answer? What must we know about development?

 

The ONE thing we need to know is that development is about people.

 

What does this mean?

 

Our primary focus in development is to train, equip, and release people.

 

This can happen anywhere, at any time. We remove limitations from peoples’ lives to empower them to bring transformation where they are.

 

Does this change your perspective of development? How can you empower and release those around you?

TERMS & CONDITIONS
  1. Gifts to approved Global Development Group Projects in partnership with Metamorphic over $2 are tax deductible.
  2. No non-development activities are undertaken using tax deductible gifts.
  3. Our projects are typically designed in such a way that the activities can be implemented incrementally, regardless if a fundraising target is met or exceeded. However, if excess funds are still received, they may be applied to other approved project activities. [example: if the project was to raise funds for 3 wells, but only raises enough for 2 wells, then only 2 wells will be completed.]
  4. Reasonable effort will be taken to use the donated funds according to the donor’s preference. However, the project manager will make decisions in regard to implementation that are in the best interests of the project outcomes based on the stage of the project. (example: if a different water solution will help more people that option will be chosen at the time)
  5. Please Note: All of the reports that the donor/donors will receive will reflect the above and accurately account for the results.
