Stanford University’s Center for social innovation defines it as “the process of developing and deploying effective solutions to challenging and often systemic social and environmental issues in support of social progress” (link). Over the past ten years, Community First has engineered such solutions in the fields of water & agriculture, education and the creation and development of many local businesses.
And throughout its ten years as an international development organization, Community First has always had social innovation as its driving force. Combined with a youthful multidisciplinary team on the field, this gave rise to many life-changing and sustainable local solutions to the global problems of poverty.
