CCCD visibility growing in leaps and bounds
Strategic networking and outreach initiatives by the Creative Centre for Communication and Development (CCCD) are now yielding positive results. From its epicentre at Montgomery Hall in the northern suburb of Kingsdale, CCCD is now drawing beneficiaries from some of the eastern, western and southern suburbs of Bulawayo metropolitan province in Zimbabwe.
The organisation’s structured approach to community mobilisation has availed opportunities for the organisation to reach out to more women and girls locally and internationally. The strategy was adopted in 2012 after a realisation that there were more women and girls in need of the services offered by the organisation.
In 2008/09, CCCD was working with community members in the northern suburb of Queens Park. In 2010/2011, the organisation extended its reach in the northern suburb by reaching out to women and girls in Kingsdale, Woodville and Saurcetown. In 2012/2013, the organisation extended its reach to beneficiaries from western suburbs such as Nkulumane, Mpopoma, Cowdray Park and Makokoba, southern suburbs such as Hillside, eastern suburbs such as Waterford and other northern suburbs such as Trinance.
Meanwhile, CCCD is also making her presence felt on online. Our blog, http://wwwcreativecommunication.blogspot.com has attracted readers from as far afield as the United States of America, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, Canada, India, France, Ghana, and South Africa.
We are getting better and smarter at gathering and analysing relevant data that allows us to track the social impact we are making as we touch the lives of women and girls in Zimbabwe.
