COACH Community Mapping
COACH doesn’t take a ‘cookie cutter’ approach to working with our partners to seek transformation in their local communities. We believe it is of foundational importance to begin by really listening to what is happening in each local context, and mapping both the strengths and the needs facing your local community.
