Before starting projects or a petition, every community must complete either a SWOT Analysis or a Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment (VCA). A Guide to prepare said analysis will be viewed by each individual member of the community. And that Analysis must be endorsed by minimum 51% of a poll within the community, by using the platform. Other affiliate /integrated communities are able to see the status of community Analysis, petitions and projects opened for contribution or donation. At the completion of SWOT or VCA, Volunteers and Philanthropic initiatives are able to assist in preparing the project, prior to opening for donations. Everyone will be able to view the status and involvement of Volunteers and Philanthropic initiatives in completing the process.
Community Problems - Vulnerability Assessment
Problems are Vulnerabilities in the community. A vulnerability has many dimensions – economic, social, demographic, political/institutional and psychological – that affect people’s susceptibility to environmental hazards, in addition to their physical exposure to the hazards themselves. It is influenced by a number of factors, at different levels from the community level to the global. It is also dynamic, changing under the pressure of these many different forces.
Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis (VCA) identifies the factors that make them vulnerable, how they are affected and their needs and capacities, and ensures that projects, programs, and policies address these needs.
VCA views vulnerability in the broadest sense and therefore tries (where possible) to consider a wide range of environmental, economic, social, cultural, institutional and political pressures. It also considers the capacities, resources, and assets people use to resist, cope with and recover from disasters and other external shocks.
Operationally, VCA is used as a diagnostic tool (to understand problems and their underlying causes), a planning tool (to priorities and sequence actions and inputs), a risk assessment tool (to help assess specific risks) and a tool for empowering and mobilizing vulnerable communities. VCA can be applied at many different levels, and program to community and household.
Economic and political factors often determine people’s level of vulnerability and the strength of their capacity to resist, cope and recover. The vulnerability is generally greater where poverty and/or inadequate social protection make people less capable of resisting hazards. Work on poverty reduction is, therefore, vital. In addition, disasters often undermine efforts at reducing poverty and set back the progress already achieved.
Assessment of Planning
- Planning the VCA.
- Preparation phase.
- Using the investigation tools with the community.
- Systematizing, analyzing and interpreting the data.
- Returning information to the community and deciding priorities and actions for transformation.
Planning to Action
- Turn vulnerabilities into capacities through practical actions.
- Recommendations and report writing for local authorities, donors, and partners.
- programmed implementation: risk reduction projects with the community.
Individual who completed personal profile can fill a Philanthropic initiative as an organization or institution. Philanthropic initiatives are able to contribute the communities in any field or cause after communities completing their SWOT or VCA. When Analysis is completed by a community, the platform will disseminate an invitation/ alert /Massage to matching Philanthropic initiative. So when a Philanthropic initiative accepts the invitation, the requested community will get a list of Philanthropic initiative interested to participate in a community project/cause/petition. Also, history of donations Philanthropic initiative can be viewed.
