Development Policy Statement

Influenced by the new development paradigm, which puts people first, New Vision Foundation-International (NVFI) follows a participatory approach in every sphere of its work. The traditional knowledge of the vulnerable and marginalized people is valued and respected, and there is confidence that vulnerable and marginalized people are capable of leading transformational interventions to enhance the development of their communities.


It is our belief that, for a community to work to improve its own development and reduce its dependency, there is a need for full involvement at all stages of the development cycle. The participation of communities in identification, planning, management, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of projects is a key factor in our (NVFI) work. Internally, a participatory approach is adopted in managing the affairs of the organization.


Externally, NVFI’s role as a “Change Agent” helps to develop community management structures that are capable of managing their own development. This increases the ability of the community to demand accountability in all their affairs; from leaders to officials. It also reinforces the community’s belief in the value of their own development choices and efforts. These community management structures are not parallel structures, but are built upon traditional institutions promoting equitable representation and participation.


Human resource development is an essential part of our development work. This means ensuring that the community is trained and skilled, as well as organized, to maximize the potential of the community to take hold of its own development. NVFI strongly believes in maximizing its impact by transferring field experience into knowledge to influence the development policies and practices of NGOs, donors and government agencies. This is important for working towards the long-term goal of eradicating poverty.
