Approach & Methodology

DSC has adopted a working methodology aimed at organising communities and districts to assure coordinated and synergic results. Africa can only move forward when its human resource accepts the challenge to “design, build and paddle” its own canoes. It is only through such an approach that the required organisation necessary for community development can be sustained. The two-prong approach adopted by DSC in grant sourcing and choice of projects to be implemented are:

  • Proactive-ness: involves DSC performing needs assessment, identifying project opportunities in specific locations and sourcing funding to implement them.

  • Reactive-ness: involves an external entity or beneficiary requesting for support from DSC with an already-identified community or locality for interventions.


  • DSC follows a five-step project development cycle that is used in all its community development work. This is to assure efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of all project interventions. The five steps are:

  • Community needs assessment using a livelihood security framework (PRA);
  • Participatory project formulation;
  • Participatory project implementation;
  • Rigorous project monitoring and evaluation with all stakeholders involved; and
  • Impact assessment and post implementation review of projects to measure results, benefits, outcomes and also document lessons learned to inform recommendations, decision-making and the design of future projects.
