Challenges Working in a Community

Community-based initiatives rely on the community for the sustainability and viability of the initiatives. Some difficulties may be present for initiatives to achieve stability and support from within the larger community as Riham from Beit Sahoor explains, however, as Lina from Dalia Association demonstrates, for an initiative to be successful it has to take into account the many dimensions of the community that it works in.



Initiatives may face internal challenges that pose risk to the work being done. In these situations, as Lina describes, it is best to step back and evaluate the circumstances, challenges, and context the community is facing.
