Community Analysis

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.


Philanthropic initiatives

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.


Explain your idea

Our Objective is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being. It promotes mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation, justice and lasting peace amongst all peoples. Impartiality, it makes no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. It endeavors to relieve the suffering of individuals, being guided solely by their needs, and to give priority to the most urgent vulnerable cases. This will improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity. Our platform will be branded as “Unite Hand”. www.unitehand.com The platform will facilitate to support individual’s aspiration to transform themselves and their communities, for inclusion, social justice and equality with a way of life. All communities have equal status and share equal responsibilities and duties in helping each other, is worldwide. The Platform will be promoting ideas of capacity building within the communities through self-solutions. Also, this platform will facilitate networking among Community Initiators, Volunteers, and Philanthropic initiatives. The platform will transform the isolated communities into communities of strength, through collaboration in national, regional, and global level as in figure 1. The platform will facilitate to identify their vulnerabilities and capacities themselves by mapping the resources from their communities or neighboring or regional or global communities. Also by the platform, community initiators (users) will be able to recognize common problems or vulnerabilities or capacities. This will help communities to share their experiences, and resources or capacities to make happen the change they need through planning community projects by the help of volunteers/consultants and philanthropic initiatives (individual/organization/donators). To that end, one community with very vulnerable or fewer capacity features may be integrated with a community with less vulnerability and more capacity. For Example: 1. A vulnerable Community in Eretria can be integrated/joined with a community France, or Canada to find a solution for a problem identified (vulnerability) by sourcing the resources from France or USA or any other global community. The platform will facilitate to identify their vulnerabilities and capacities themselves as in figure 2,3 or 4. And communities can identify more problems or unique problems to make happen a change. Also, all problems must be passed by minimum 51% of the online poll using the platform. Then, Platform will show the real-time updates of such votes and problems. Also, they will be able to start a project to solve the problem (vulnerability) by finding resources through the platform.

Who Benefits?

Our Platform will not be concentrated on particular issues or problems in a community, but we design the platform to cater the users, individuals, and communities, to identify the problems, vulnerabilities, weaknesses, threats, strengths, opportunities, capacities and risks related to political, environmental, social and economic factors in a community. This will help communities to identify the root causes of issues and the solution for those issues, by themselves, by collaborating volunteers, consultants and charity initiatives. This platform will benefit, individuals by bridging as a community, in local, national, regional and global level. Especially, the platform will help vulnerable individuals, families, communities for transform themselves from vulnerability to capacity. The communities will be given the option of affiliating with other communities, locally/regional/globally.

How is your idea unique?

Our idea is unique; by the way, we approach for the solutions through our platform. And by the way, we have been promoting ideas of capacity building within the communities through self-solutions. This will facilitate individual community members to identify their vulnerabilities and capacities to make happen the change they need.
