Developing people, empowering communities…

Do you want to encourage social transformation, but don’t know where to start? Do you want to build the capacity of communities, but don’t know their needs, or what the best way would be to achieve these goals?

At QST Consulting (Quest for short!), we believe in the strength and positive creativity of individuals and communities, and their ability to
• create their own futures now,
• empower themselves in the process, and
• achieve sustainable results.

One person can certainly make a difference in his or her community and to achieve community development goals it is well worth investing in empowering individuals, groups and communities to achieve sustainable outcomes. Our mission is to work alongside individuals and communities to achieve those goals.

Please browse through our website to see how we can help you achieve your social transformation goals.

 

Worth quoting…

"Our present concern is with the threefold global crisis of poverty, environmental destruction, and social disintegration. These are symptoms of the malfunction of our institutions and values. The more we focus our attention directly on the symptoms, rather than on transforming the institutions and values that cause them, the more certain we can be that the crisis will deepen for lack of appropriate action."

David C Korten

 

“Do not look the other way, do not hesitate…Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right; the right to dignity and a decent life…while poverty persists there is no real freedom. Now is the time to take action.”
