Tearfund works through churches in some of the world’s poorest places, helping them to respond to the needs around them.
When local churches work together with their local communities to identify and respond to shared needs, using their own resources, we call this ‘church and community mobilisation’, or CCM.
Integrating advocacy into the CCM process enables local communities to also identify and access local government resources to address their development needs.
This process - which we call CCM advocacy - opens up a world of new possibilities.
The Owii community in Uganda, and Tipa Tipa in Bolivia, are celebrating what they have achieved through CCM advocacy.
