Do you feel that the current development of Goa is losing sight of what REALLY matters and what is TRULY valuable?

Would you like to help your village or community explore a different way of doing local development that is people-led?

Do you hunger for a different kind of dialogue? One that really moves beyond just talk, and turns ideas into ACTIONS?

Do you yearn for new skills to support you as a leader in Goa?

Another future for Goa

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) using Participatory Leadership is a way of self-organising that helps communities to understand, value and mobilize their people and assets to bring about a future that they want to be part of.

Our intention is to offer hope and an alternative option to villages that are threatened by destructive development such as large scale tourism projects, mining and other forms of enforced “progress” that people have not consented to.

What if there could be another way?

What if we don’t have to destroy Green Goa to have a flourishing future?
