Community Capacity Building Technology (CCBT)
Community Capacity Building has been carried out mainly in some of the most developed countries; however, in recent years, it has been used in the emerging economies. The term CCB was introduced as part of a political fashion, in order to address the underlying reasons for inequalities and depravations in specific communities. Butterfield Green has been engaged in the development of web-based technologies and tools (CCBT) for empowering individuals and small communities, helping them to compete in today’s global economy. Our project (CCBT) has a simple economic objective, and that is to empower our members and communities to materialise their professional potential. To achieve this we developed number of Internet based platforms where individuals can access the type of technology, which is available to only few large organisations.
The CCBT addresses number of key disadvantages of these individuals and communities:
- Lack of capital to invest in their business
- Access to professional advice such as marketing expertise, budget control, legal advice, online services, etc…
- Access to effective training
Butterfield Green together with her local partners works towards community empowerment.
According to OECD “community” is formed based on geography, identity or issue. Butterfield Green CCBT allows communities to be formed with a strong sense of belonging, clear identity, and a clear purpose, but having said this, our CCBT connects our members to much wider communities, both national and international.
