Movement Matters

The Movement for Community-led Development is unique because it is not a standalone entity. As of July 2022, we have started a monthly column to share human interest stories that illustrate breakthroughs and learning moments across our membership. Every month, Sera Bulbul interviews a member of our Movement to present key elements of their work and our partnership.
