Community Organising

We believe we can create strong, sustainable and resilient growth;

 for the community, by the community.

Community institutions are organisations owned by members of the community they serve. Our goal is to create a strong foundation for sustainable ownership and national coalitions, and we strive to give women agency in the structures that benefit the entire community.

These include:​

  • Women-led Self-Help Groups - SHGs

  • Community-based organisations - CBOs

  • Patient networks 

  • Producers companies 

  • Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME)

Education & Advocacy

We uplift the individual -  from social advocacy against stigma, to personal skills development. 

A key element of our work is using advocacy and education to build sustainable partnerships, break down outdated prejudices that marginalise certain groups, and to develop skill-sets that are practical, inclusive and forward-thinking.

Some of our methods include:

  • EduClowns theatre performances 

  • Multi-stakeholder dialogues

  • Vocational training 

  • Rallies, marches and petitions

We promote socio-economic development of women through income generating activities and micro-business models

Economic support is often one of the most urgent priorities for vulnerable women and their communities. In order to ensure their financial stability, Blossom is working with women to create funding opportunities towards supporting small business operations. These include:

  • Promoting micro-business opportunities

  • Providing technical trainings (e.g. tailoring, flower making)

  • Exchange initiatives, i.e. Goats for Gains
