CAPACITY-BUILDING INITIATIVES

Masy Consultants works alongside project sponsors to organise and facilitate capacity-building initiatives aimed at empowering communities particularly women and youth, with the knowledge and skills to create sustainable solutions to local challenges.

CONTEXT

The ability to access clean and sustainable water sources and energy is essential to human development leading to economic growth and productivity. However, rural poverty remains a prevalent issue across the Philippines. Millions of Filipino families continue to rely on unsafe and unsustainable water sources and lack access to improved sanitation. And while grid electricity is slowly becoming available in remote settlements, many households continue to wholly or partially use kerosene and other non-renewables for lighting.

Improved access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services and clean energy is the gateway to increased economic opportunities and quality of life. This is why communities need to urgently educate women and youths, those who are most disadvantaged yet are very capable of learning new technical skills and applying them to their communities’ needs with the confidence, knowledge and leadership to be social entrepreneurs. To build community resilience is to create a self-sufficient environment where every member of the community shares ownership of the development and implementation of the solution.

Masy Consultants works alongside project sponsors to plan, develop and deliver tailored Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)  projects centred on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Projects are customised to deliver to project sponsor objectives while ensuring the needs of beneficiaries are always prioritised. We ensure each project (or idea) is fully realised to maximise their social impact from start to end.
