Share and Care Nepal is a registered organization working primarily for the upliftment of the most needy people in remote and urban areas of Nepal. Over the past 25 years SCN has been involved in conducting various short term courses for its own community, partners, staff as well as international volunteers/students. While serving the communities as enabler and facilitator, we have learned many practical aspects of community development and management. There were requests from individuals and organizations as well as local churches to formalize our short term training programs. In response to these requests we have designed a Diploma Course on Community Development Management. It is expected that the capacity of individuals, organizations and Churches will be strengthened in community development initiatives. We would also like to encourage and inspire the process of adopting best development practices by all involved in community development Community Development Management
