The IRCD is a development organisation which provides mechanisms to improve the quality of life  of rural and  peri-urban communities throughout Africa, by the creation and implementation of integrated sustainable community initiatives that address the socio-economic needs designed for each specific community.

 
The IRCD will be able to achieve its vision through:

  • The identification of  specific socio economic needs of the communities in which it is invited to operate
  • The mobilisation of these communities to become active participants in a community based development strategy
  • The providing of integrated solutions for these communities needs including the establishment of  community business and management structures and the training of  community members
  • The mobilisation of investment funds from local and foreign sources  to fund the above actions and structures until they become self-sustainable
  • Facilitate skills development and transfer thus ensuring self-employment  & job creation
  • Utilizing appropriate technologies that provide environmentaly friendly solutions.
  • Providing administrative support, regular monitoring, evaluation and supplementary training for projects to ensure their sustainability.

  • The ability to present their needs to and aquire support from business, funders and service providers  in a structured manner
