Overview:Bridging Peoples is a training, facilitation and research agency, based in Timor-Leste, that puts community needs and context at the heart of our work. To get this done, we take a three-pronged approach: (i) providing tailored advice, training and expertise to organisations and individuals, to help them maximise development impact in communities; (ii) providing a practical, online course, "Working in Communities", for development professionals who wish to improve how they work in communities; and (iii) working directly with community-based organisations and local NGOs, providing direct support, and adapting our approach based on what works and what doesn’t in their individual communities. The team comprises a mixture of Timorese and international community development specialists.
All of our work is focussed on promoting a single, basic idea: that development does not need to be introduced from ‘outside’, as part of a one-size-fits-all package. We believe that the key to positive change lies in respect for diversity and culture. We provide tailored training, facilitation and research expertise to find ways to work with the unique cultural, social, historical and economic contexts of individual communities, while also getting the job done.
