- Program Description:
- The mission of the Highland Support Project is to innovate transformational models of development that break cycles of dependency. We understand poverty as a process rather than a state of being. A process can be associated with a place, and if you change a certain process, you will see different results.
We can provide experienced community facilitators to realize group interviews, semi-structured interviews, lead workshops, conduct brain storming sessions, ranking exercises and participatory evaluations to discover root causes and opportunities. Evaluating root causes and opportunities, we can help explore new concepts and link with existing approaches to establish realistic indicators to achieve goals and produce measurable outcomes. We provide accompaniment throughout implementation cycle to provide design services in the adaptation and adjustment of planning. Managing threats and incidents are a critical component to ensure projects results are delivered to target population. If need for changes arise, manage any proposed changes in scope, budget, chronogram etc. are registered and evaluated.

The Highland Support Project is a fantastic organization to be apart of and travel with. Although I've never traveled with them, I've had the pleasure of hearing the founder speak and speaking with people part of their team. The team is very close and
are all kind, outgoing individuals! While helping the Highland Support Project, I realized the challenges of entrepreneurship these families encountered. In an environment where they had many resources, they were unable to make the most of what they had. That is where the Highland Support Project steps in, and helps these families maximize the use of their resources to their benefit. I would recommend volunteering for the Highland Support Project because they are not just an organization that take you to an indigenous land to observe, they are actually helping people by installing stoves, which may seem basic to us, but are a luxury for many of these people.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
