About Compassionate Capitalism Community Development

Community development is a process where community members are supported by agencies to identify and take collective action on issues that are important to them. Community development is therefore critical for the creation of vibrant, safe, and prosperous communities.

The high levels of marginalization created by unchecked free-market capitalism have made community development inaccessible to the majority of the communities in developing countries leading to a high presence of slums, gross poverty, and extreme underdevelopment.

Community development is a pillar of compassionate capitalism and leverages information from the development rankings to identify neglected communities for the deployment of organized development initiatives through knowledge and information, resource allocation, skill impartation, project execution, and more.
