Community activities and projects for community engagement and development

India is a land of abundant communities. Be it religion, norms, values or profession, every category produces its own communities. And these communities conduct various community engagement activities for youth, community projects and community development practices which inculcate the feeling of oneness and the sense of belonging.

Let us take an example of the Muslim community in our country. They have been spread out in every part of our country, but when it comes to celebrating their Eid, they come together wherever they are, with their fellow Muslim brothers and ritualize. Not only the Muslim community but the Gujarati community is functioning all around the world and conducting community development activities and undertaking community projects. As fondly called, the, Gujarati Samaj, celebrates Navratri, Uttrayan, Diwali, Holi, with the same zeal as it is being celebrated in the state of Gujarat. Many more community activities sustain the roots of our culture.

Talking about a wider aspect, when in a foreign land, the barriers are in-existent. Indians find an affinity towards fellow Asians and take up community projects and participate actively in community involvement activities. They devour this distant kinship and thus the cross-cultural and cross-country ties strength.

Community engagement ideas and community engagement projects ideas help us to find solutions to common problems thereby having a community development. Local community banks, community school, community recreation centers and many other initiatives can not only help to generate jobs but stabilize the economic growth of a community and help to manage the available resources wisely.

A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development and community engagement process leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities.

‘Little drops make a mighty ocean.’
Similarly, when community engagement strategies and community development projects takes place, the whole country advances forward both culturally and economically. And for that to happen on a faster rate community engagement skills for youth must take place and various other community engagement programs should be initiated.

However recently in a lot of community service programs that have taken place, it has seen a maximum youth participation. Today’s youth is enthusiastic but sensible in its approach. The feeling of ‘giving back’ to the society is found in the youth which benefits a community, a society, and a country. Be it a task of volunteering for a blood donation camp or organizing a community function, it helps children and adults to learn about the community in which they live and brings to the light various common social issue.

We should always remember that in a community we are one and one can make all the difference.
